Join national treasure and celebrated broadcaster Michael Parkinson in conversation with his son and co-author Mike, as they celebrate the life and career of a man who has interviewed over 2000 of the most important cultural figures of the 20th and 21st centuries.

In this very special edition of Sir Michaels much adored evening with we mark the publication of his book, George Best: A Memoir, we remember his unique and close relationship with Best, who he first met as a whip thin, Belfast boy with film star looks and a footballing talent that was the wonder of his generation. 50 years after Best was named European Footballer of the Year, Sir Michael will reveal his thoughts and reflections on why a man who seemingly had everything, tragically decided to throw it all away.

With unbelievable anecdotes and carefully selected clips from the Parkinson archive this is a show that will leave you feeling nostalgic in the very best way.
