Yes, it is. Mr. Dobson himself.

Enjoyed that, thanks for the heads up. Seems there are some interesting programs on around the same time on this channel for the rest of the week. Sky+ them, hope I get time to watch them :-)

Great last 20mins, I've set it to record at 01:30.

What an inspirational character with some strong opinions. He should certainly stick to astronomy rather than pursue a singing role based on the last few minutes! :(

Sadly missed this (no Sky), but I am finding a pattern here - two of the most interesting people I have met in astronomy have both been slightly eccentric older gents - Mr John Wall (of Crayford focuser fame) and Mr Ian Poyser or IR Telescopes. I have had the pleasure of working with both of them through PSP2011 and can highly recommend taking the time to talk with them if you get the chance. Ian should be at PSP2012 and I am working on John at the moment :(
