Passionate Pilgrim Just
Eric Christmas Story
Who Killed Eric Morecambe
upon a time, not very long ago, in a galaxy not
very far away - in fact just down the road
and around the corner - a then great
broadcasting organisation known as the BBC decided
make a short series of programmes on
astronomy. The series was titled The Sky at
was presented by an eccentric amateur astronomer.
Surviving the slings and arrows of outrageous
bureaucrats, who would have consigned it to
the dustbin of
television history, the 'short series' continued
for over half a century, fronted by
its founding presenter ...
The Astronomical Patrick Moore.
The only DVD
Britain's favourite astronomer

With a little help from Sir Arthur C
Clarke, Prof Richard Gregory, Dr Allan Chapman,
Prof Garry Hunt, and 2 surviving producers from
his 50 year reign, the last great personality
from the golden age of British television opens
the door on his extraordinary life. From
lift-off to TV icon of the space age, Sir
Patrick recounts his adventures, on the way
imparting his equally unconventional views on
bureaucrats - and how to annoy them, politicians
- and how to ignore them, and the 'final
frontiers' he hopes await us.

programmes, but original material filmed around
Sir Patrick's home, his local cricket club, and
