Sky at Night – 1963 December 13, 2011

This is a stunning find, featuring a rather handsome Patrick Moore discussing what it would be like to land on the moon 6 years before it actually happened.  Fascinating.  The BBC’s write-up says:

Many of the early Sky at Night programmes were destroyed or lost from the BBC library. Recently this early and very rare programme from 1963 with Arthur C Clarke, was discovered in an African TV station. Patrick and Arthur were both members of the British Interplanetary Society and here they discuss bases on the Moon and Mars. Arthur C Clarke made very few interviews, so this really is a broadcasting gem- once lost, but now found.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
