SIR MICHAEL PARKINSON
Busy day today - managed to meet up with a super lady and write up the interview with her for an Essex journal then off to Chelmsford to take pictures of Sir Michael Parkinson. He was signing copies of his autobiography - Parky. Queue of more than a hundred outside Waterstone's - but all came in quickly and met Parky and had their books signed. Met the usual journos and some nice new photographers, so the resulting snaps will be in the local press as of tomorrow. The publishing team and staff - headed by Vicky at Waterstone's - were highly organised and coped well with streams of people wanting to get into the store, not an easy task. He has been busy on a whistle stop tour around Britain signing the book and his new DVD containing the best of his interviews – a nice Christmas stocking filler.
