THE SKY AT NIGHT, Sir Patrick Moore Special @ The Kielder Observatory
Event video produced by In-House Films for The Sky At Night & Kielder Observatory.This event was a very special weekend when the largest facility at The Kielder Observatory was named The Sir Patrick Moore Observatory in honour of the great astronomer and long serving presenter of the BBC’s The Sky at Night, who died in December 2012.The dedication ceremony took place at the Kielder Observatory just as The Sky at Night team began filming the latest episode at the site.
Amatuer astronomer and comedian Jon Culshaw was given the task of unveiling a plaque at the observatory’s largest turret, home to a 0.5m Newtonian reflecting telescope, one of the biggest public scopes in the country.Culshaw was joined at the ceremony by fellow presenters Paul Abel, Pete Lawrence, Chris Lintott, Chris North, and Lucie Green, as well as the observatory’s founder, director Gary Fildes.“What a huge privilege this is,” said Fildes. “When I started work on Kielder Observatory I knew how important astronomy was to the public but not how successful it would become. In our first four years we have had over 40,000 visitors and I bet every one of them was here in one way or another, because of Sir Patrick and The Sky At Night.”In-House Films were there for the entire weekend to capture this great event.

Patrick Moore on Aspel & Company in 1988
Patrick was the first guest on the ITV show Aspel & Company on 1988 January 9th. The other guests were Alan Coren & Zsa Zsa Gabor (I will upload another chunk involving them in a further video). Despite his size Patrick was amazingly quick on his feet for a man approaching 65, as can be seen as he sprints to and from the Xylophone, which he plays in his usual inimitable style!
The Sky at Night - Looking for trouble - Feb 1999
A Sky at Night I took part in at the start of Feb 1999, broadcast in the early hours of Feb 8th. There had been a lot of media hype about Near Earth Asteroids colliding with the Earth in the previous year, so the new producer, Ian Russell, suggested Patrick might do a Sky at Night about NEAs. Patrick liked the idea and, at the BAA Out of Town meeting at Carlisle in the previous year, asked me to plan the programme and appear with him on the show. As with all the BBC TV Centre Sky at Nights of that era, we assembled on the Saturday, did a few run-throughs, and the resulting 20 minute show was just an un-edited 20 minute chat between Patrick and myself. No autocues, no editing (apart from minor inserts) and an hour after we had finished our chat the video was in the broadcast queue at TV Centre, ready for transmission the next night! No silly background music or pretty graphics and virtually zero cost compared to most TV shows. A brilliant low budget system which was why the Sky at Night had survived for so long!
The Sky at Night - The Sky with Chips - 1998
A Sky at Night I took part in at the start of May 1998 (broadcast on May 4). In those days the show was filmed in London at the BBC TV Centre in a single 20 minute 'chat'. The video was finalised in the late afternoon and broadcast the next night! No messing about in those times. You had two or three run-throughs and there was virtually no editing and no autocue! Filmed in the glorious reign of the Sky at Night producer Pieter Morpurgo and with Patrick still fully in charge of who should be on the show. A 20 minute prog., filmed and finished in a 20 minute run, on a Saturday afternoon in London. A few hours after Patrick, myself and the crew assembled together the programme was completed and the video transferred to the broadcast queue for Sunday night. Simple, but effective, and with no nauseating background music!
Patrick Moore & Michael Bentine. UFOs Fact or Fantasy?
My 1979 cassette recording of the audio track from one of the most entertaining Sky at Nights of all time. The programme, entitled 'UFOs Fact or Fantasy', was transmitted on December 11th 1979. As much of the show was conversational banter between the two men, it is still very entertaining, even without seeing them gesticulating in Patrick's Selsey study. The show ended with two of Bentine's famous quirky 'puppets' outside Patrick's study window, deciding the Earth wasn't up to much so it was time to move on to Saturn......

Carl Sagan and Patrick Moore on Extraterrestrial Life and Civilizations
Dr. Carl Sagan and Sir Patrick Moore, in a clip from "The Sky at Night" from 1974, discuss the possibility of extraterrestrial life existing in outer space. The question of what technology an advanced alien civilization would have is asked and whether it would be comparable to human technology or far more exotic.Carl Sagan, along with many others, had argued that all technical civilizations, no matter how advanced or exotic, will speak in the language of science and mathematics and most will stumble upon radio technology for communication at some point in technical development, perhaps even very early.
Given the narrow range of the observed habitability of complex life in our own solar system combined with the vast distances of space, it seems most likely that one inhabited planet may be entirely isolated in space and time from another by hundreds if not thousands of light years in a given galaxy.
Therefore transmitting messages, written in scientific and mathematical text in long lasting mediums such as deep space probes or radio waves is the best way to contact an extraterrestrial civilization and hence the best way to receive contact should be to listen to very weak signals embedded in radio noise over a few important frequencies, perhaps associated with the physical constants.
