Quote:Was he still doing 'The Sky at Night'? I can remember waiting up to see it, it was always on at 11:20PM?, and my Mum & Dad would always comment on the 'lovely piece of music'. When they sent me to the US to watch the Apollo 11 launch, Dad wrote to Patrick asking if he would be going on the same trip. He wrote back to me on his old typewriter to say that he would be 'busy in the studio' but wished me well!RIP Sir Patrick.
