  1. Unfortunately I can't find it on either site. I frequently listen to Beeb podcasts on my MP3 player which is why it's so frustrating. My attempts to record the sound output of my sound card have resulted in an eerie silence.
  2. I do wish the BBC would make all iplayer radio content downloadable, at least for a limited time. It seems so random. Some things such as Monkey Cage are freely available and others not. I know the play is available on listen again but I want to put it on my Mp3 player and listen to it. Frustrating .......
  3. We all grow old and perhaps slow down a bit Buzz is an elderly man and handled the live TV situation well . I stand by my previous post, we should celebrate him and his peers and appreciate their brave and amazing contribution to space science and exploration. It will not be long now before all that generation of astronauts are gone forever, they were a breed apart and I don't think we will ever see their like again. I would rather listen to Buzz reading his shopping list than most of the talking heads we are subjected to on TV.
  4. FWIW. Spend all the time you can with Buzz and his contemporaries say I. Forget numbingly dull sports people, vacuous pop stars and other so called celebrities, the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo astronauts are true heroes and role models and we should cherish and celebrate them while they are still with us. Buzz is 85 this year! Nice to see Lucie and be reminded what a natural and fluid presenter she is ............
  5. Moon It seems pretty clear on dear old Wikipedia .....I refer you to "Name and Etymology" I know as a source it can be a bit variable, but the references look authorative on this one.

  7. I like comment 510 from Jimbob I hope he had his tongue in his cheek at the time.
  8. And very good it was too. Reminded me of Horizon when it used to be a good science programme.
  9. I think NOT doing it is a very good suggestion! Give them all excessive makeup, some spray tan and a few tat's and we'd really be (insert the current street term here) Why not have the viewers vote presenters off the programme too ..........now there is an idea.
  10. Yes I feel the same way, I'm fast approaching a time when I will not bother with it any more. It's so sad, after all these years. I'm certain Patrick would be furious with what has been done to the programme. I've said it before, but after we lost Patrick and his team continued it the programme was fine and didn't need any changes to presenters, content or format. Yes, they brought Lucie in as part of the team but otherwise it was business as usual at Sky at Night and Lucie was a very good choice for the job. She is comfortable in front of the camera, easy to watch and can speak in coherent sentences. Now we have "coming up on the programme", superficial little soundbite features interpersed with plinky music and the dreadful ping pong presenting between Chris and MAP (and I have expressed my opinion of the latter as a presenter, not, I emphasise as a person or as a scientist) It is also a nonsense to say that we wanted the programme to continue and therefore it should now be beyond criticism.
  11. No, they didn't axe it. They are slowly choking it to death instead.
  12. Yes nice to see Lucie. Otherwise it was pretty dire, brief chat, plinky music, another brief chat, more plinky music and so on. Do we really need to be told what's coming up in the programme? Bring Lucie back and The Sky at Night I say........
  13. Agreed, Cosmos is good and NDT is the perfect presenter. I saw.........the moon ..........documentary..... first time around..... and thought....it was dire. You couldn't pay me enough to sit through it again. I commented to my wife that the presenter was awful and I hoped she didn't become a regular on TV and now here we are......!
  14. Yes, the petition was save the S@N not start slowly choking it to death. We are indeed the licence payers, but that doesn't seem to worry the BBC these days.
  15. Yes, and it is precisely that, given that she now seems to get a large proportion of the presenting which will lose the audience and ultimately kill a very special TV programme. S@N didn't need fixing, it was fine under the care of Chris, Lucie and team. I 'd be interested to learn what they (privately) think of the improvements?
