: Parkinson

In the first of four compilations, Michael Parkinson looks back at some of his most memorable interviewing encounters.
Parkinson's interviews with Muhammad Ali always made for compelling viewing. With both men at the height of their professions, and Ali regularly exhibiting the fierce intelligence which helped make him a great champion, this was the closest that interviewing could get to the excitement of the sporting arena. Here Parkinson looks back at his four meetings with the former world champion boxer, and charts the career of the man still regarded by many as the greatest of all pugilists.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome
