Moore's Marathon
Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

Patrick Moore has railed on the pages of Radio Times against the changes that have been made over the years to this oldest of television warhorses. But he still sits at the heart of it, and he still presents with the most brilliantly old-school delivery on television. One meteor in his orbit this week is Sky at Night regular (and impressionist) Jon Culshaw, who visits a Hampshire astronomical group as part of the Moore Marathon – a challenge to mark the series’ 55th anniversary by finding and logging the great astronomer’s 55 favourite heavenly objects.
