British Interviewer Parkinson Tapes Final Show
Legendary British interviewer Michael Parkinson -- "Parky," as he is affectionately known to millions of viewers -- taped his final show after 36 years Thursday night, bringing on board a raft of top British celebrities for a two-hour special. "I was told to pick a wish list and I put down these names and every single one of them is here." He read them out: "David Beckham, Sir Michael Caine, Sir David Attenborough, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Edna Everage, Billy Connolly, Peter Kay and Jamie Cullum." Parkinson appeared visibly moved as he received a standing ovation from the studio audience. The special is scheduled to air in December.
