Patrick Moore – Can You Speak Venusian ?

“One Pair of Eyes” with Patrick Moore discussing what he calls “independent thinkers”, people who “weren’t shackled by the strings of convention” (or, in most cases, reality). A very polite look at everyone from UFO spotters to flat earthers. He also wrote a book on the same subject.

Moore was president of the British Astronomical Association, co-founder and president of the Society for Popular Astronomy (SPA), author of over 70 books on astronomy, and presenter of the world’s longest-running television series with the same original presenter, the BBC’s The Sky at Night. As an amateur astronomer, he became known as a specialist in Moon observation and for creating the Caldwell catalogue. Idiosyncrasies such as his rapid diction and monocle made him a popular and instantly recognisable figure on British television
