Last night BBC showed the 50th anniversary special of Sky At Night. You can watch the programme here

You need a real player to play it online.

I'm glad it was online, I don't have British TV. I think it was quite nice.

Some nice little bits in the show for Brian. Some nice little in-jokes for the Queen crowd, too. Liked the story bit about Roger caught in the atmosphere!

lol

I did record it, but I need to wait until my other half has watched Desperate housewives, ER, and some Sherlock Holmes thing before I can get near the recorder...

...I think Panasonic made it too easy to use...

i watched it last night on auntie beeb and found it cringingly bad.the show is well past its sell by date and needs a major overhaul.patrick moore should be sent to the tv knackers yard with Brucie and Wogan.Brian looked completely out of his depth trying to be witty and the reference to roger floating in space was just nonsense.
it looked like a promotion vehicle for anything 'brian'[note the wwry posters and other crap] and did he need to mention the guitar?,all it needed was a framed picture of paul rodgers on the wall and the lovein would of been complete.
i doubt if patrick had a clue what was going on.no wonder the bbc refused to put it on at a reasonable time,a waste of my licence fee money!

I have watched it, and I doubt it's representative of the programme usually, as there's no way anything that self-indulgent would have survived so long. One could make the point that Sir PM has earned the right to be so, but it didn't look like him that was being indulged....

Brian's wig was well done, the panning around the room to his mementoes was hamfisted beyond belief, I can't think of anything else, it didn't turn me on to astronomy though....

Two and a half then: I'm not British so I think I missed half of the jokes, but the half I got was really nice and clever and made me smile if not laugh. I love that kind of silly understated humour.
