Sky At Night Tv Programme Update

Postby Darren Henderson » 30 Oct 2013, 16:03

Here is the official BBC response about the Sky At Night. (Good News)

The BBC released the following statement earlier today:

"The BBC today announces that its longest running astronomy series, The Sky At Night, will continue next year. From February 2014, it will air in a new monthly half-hour slot on BBC Four, with repeats on BBC Two.

Kim Shillinglaw, Head of Commissioning for BBC Science and Natural History, says: “Sir Patrick Moore inspired generations of astronomers and I hope that alongside the BBC's other astronomy content, such as BBC Two’s Stargazing Live, The Sky at Night will enthuse further generations about the wonder of the night sky.”

Cassian Harrison, Editor for BBC Four, says: “I’m delighted that we are continuing with such a treasured BBC brand, and look forward to welcoming the programme to its new home on BBC Four, where it will join a rich mix of other science content.”

The Sky at Night was first broadcast on 24 April 1957 and continued to be presented by Sir Patrick Moore until his death in 2012, making it the longest-running programme with the same presenter in television history. Following Moore’s death, the series has been fronted by a team of guest presenters."
