A great man. Rest in Peace.

I'm afraid I could never get past his bombastic, irascible personality and racist, ultra right-wing politics.

Well, If when we die we go "upstairs", then he'll be right at home.

He was the ultra-backwoodsman, there's no doubt about it. He got me interested in science when I was a little lad. His vile politics didn't come through on Sky At Night, I suppose. I can't stomach Wagner's music in my house because of his revolting politics. In his case, I always imagine I can pick something of it up, thought very hard to articulate, in his music.

The programme's opening and closing theme music is "At the Castle Gate", from the incidental music to Pelléas et Mélisande by Jean Sibelius, performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham.
Lovely bit of music.

BBC Obit for those who haven't heard of him.

Politics aside, he made astronomy interesting, which is no mean feat. RIP.

Spoke his mind and didn't suffer fools gladly.

The trick in his astronomy was that the presenter understood the subject.   

Top man.

Sibelius is indeed wonderful, John. I've always found his music to be a bit dour and impenetrable, but a recent natter with a mate of mine who really understands music convinced me that I was completely wrong.

A first class communicator with a wide and deep knowledge of his subject. Such people are becoming rarer in these days of in your face shallow celebs. He will be greatly missed.
