    Default Michael Parkinsons best ever interviews.

    He was the best ever in my opinion and my top 5 would be.

    Muhammed Ali
    Oliver Reed
    James Cagney
    Bette Davis and
    Billy Connelly

    Who would be your favourite 5 ?

    Yeah, when Emu got his beak around his crotch, that can't have been fun.

    I loved the Cagney interview when he said he'd have preferred to have been a dancer and he was a great dancer but I loved his gangster films.

    True, but back in the 70s his programme was one of the best in a three-channel service. The Saturday night programme was essentiallly open-ended and if the guest(s)were talkative they were left to do so without too much interruption and it was compelling stuff. Later chat show hosts were rubbish because they would constantly interrupt and you'd never get a decent conversation.

    The selection from Beady is a good one.

    I liked Cagney.
