Parkinson was born on 28 March 1935 in the village of Cudworth near Barnsley, then in the West Riding of Yorkshire (since 1974 included in the new metropolitan county of South Yorkshire).


There was usually a musical interlude at some point, featuring a current recording star. If a solo singer, he was accompanied by the show’s musicians, who also provided walk-on music for each guest. In the 1970s, the group was led by organist Harry Stoneham, who composed the show’s theme tune. In the relaunched show the role was played by Laurie Holloway.
