The Sky at Night, BBC2
Sir Patrick Moore invited me to his eighty-eighth birthday party at Selsea in 2011 (there are eighty-eight constellations in the sky). The event was televised on the 700th episode of The Sky at Night. Look carefully and you might also find a budding film student in the scene.
