If you don't know who he is you probably don't need to.

One day our camera crew had our next day standby cancelled - pretty rare. We were in TC8 and Michael Parkinson was going to interview Muhammad Ali.

It all went very well - about 45 minutes worth - and ended to huge applause. Ali's band of heavies appeared and escorted him off stage right - straight into the camera store, a dead end. A few seconds later, with applause still going on, they re-appeared looking very sheepish and shuffled off to the corridor exit. Don't remember anything about the interview, but I expect we'll be seeing chunks of it in the next few hours.
