It is a sad day when people that you had respect for turn out to be idiots. I grew up with Patrick Moore's Sky At Night programs, as I am sure many children did, and he brought the wonders of the sky and space to our homes and for many years I had dreams of becoming an astronomer. Now today I see him quoted as saying things like "I used to watch Doctor Who and Star Trek, but they went PC - making women commanders, that kind of thing. I stopped watching" and realised that it was actually only the boys that he was talking to and not me at all.
I wonder what Heather Couper makes of this.
