We had the great pleasure of interviewing Sir Patrick Moore for our podcast, what an amazing man, he has done so many great things in his life it was hard to know what to talk to him about for the few minutes we had!

Will we ever see such a great astronomy broadcaster again? Brian Coxs new series is excellent and much talked about on this forum, but in 40 or 50 years time I cant imagine he will still be on our screens, yet Moore has been on TV and radio for longer as most people have been alive!

I am still in awe!!!

He is a fantastic guy. And this is St Patrick's day too.

I think Sir Patrick of Moore is like Sir David of Attenborough...a national treasure...but they both have something else going for them too..they were amongst the first to do what they do on a public broadcast system.....especially Patrick.........for so long he had the monopoly and thus he became part of our cultural furniture.

I can not imagine anybody else attaining such an air of familiarity. He is, in every aspect of the word..... a pioneer..... and they can only be succeeded............never replaced !
