but their math is a little shaky, it's not until 2007. Maybe the health scare of it's presenter Sir Patrick Moore (that maniacal monocled man on the xylophone) scared them into bringing it forward? Or more likely, it's the fact that it's fifty years of space exploration that's being celebrated.

Today on BBC4 , there is an evening celebrating this half century.

There's also a book coming out later this year

Ooh good! I'm going to watch it at 1am, so I can watch "Donnie Darko" too. :D

After all that pimping, I didn't get the chance to watch any of it. The Daughter and BF arrived for lunch and stayed the night.

Lovely piece by moore - I like his observation that the longevity of the show is partly down to the fact that it's in such an obscure outpost of the schedule, it never gets bumped off in favour of something else! RIP BBC Online Cult :)

Will they be talking about that new planet that's been named (or, er, discovered) I wonder?
I loved this bit: We sat under umbrellas saying things such as "Tut, tut!", "Dear me!", and "How annoying!". Heh.

You tell me. After all that pimping, I didn't get the chance to watch any of it. The Daughter and BF arrived for lunch and stayed the night.
