Thankyou so much Desp for saying what I think. Coxey is so polite but I think that he feels the same.

Stannn, yes it did appear a bit strained sometimes while Dara was blathering on about peanuts and drinks and whatnot, it's a shame really, I quite like him but he seemed a bit manic last night.

dan, do you have a telescope? if so try a light pollution filter they can make a huge difference, and if you are looking at planets and other bright stuff it's not tooo bad. But I know how you feel, when I occasionally get under a truly dark sky it's just breathtaking Cool

Did you notice Brian May said he preferred to use a Dobsonian?

What's his missus called again?

Dara was less intrusive tonight and Coxey was more relaxed but why did he have to go to a tropical island just to light a fire?
The mount for the Herschel telescope will make a super PV tracker when they've done with it Biff. (Scaffold frame with 12 castors pivoting around a central axle).

From memory I think that that piece was first used in his "wonders of the universe" series.

I think it's BBC's formula for any factual programme - send celebs off to as many far-away and exotic locations as possible for each episode.

When you listen to Brian Cox on the radio he speaks at a normal speed why on telly does he speak so slowly.
A simple question concerning Dara, just WHY

He's probbly been on a meejah course:

" ... on the other hand, people who listen to the radio usually have more than two neurons to rub together ..."

Live my Arse,

The 300m diameter METEOR just missed us last night, in a few years time it will be back and very close.

What the hell is the point of a live programme that misses the obvious.
