Why are we fascinated by the night sky? With this single question Patrick Moore sets out on a journey of exploration which takes the listener to the edge of the universe and back. Was ever a man more engaged and associated with his subject matter than Patrick Moore? He has become synonymous with astronomy, and we have grown up over the last 50 years with his name and voice becoming comfortingly familiar.

His TV programme The Sky at Night is the longest running TV show in the world. In 2007 it celebrated 50 years of broadcasting. He has had countless guests in that time, including recently, astronomy enthusiast Brian May the guitarist in Queen.

It is safe to say that he has become a much loved figure and a national icon. His appearance and his distinctive voice have become entwined in our national culture.

Appearances in such shows as Have I got News For You, Dr Who and the Morecambe and Wise Show have added to his appeal beyond fans of astronomy. And surely he is Britain's best known xylophone player? This marvellous recording is no dry science lesson. His enthusiasm for his subject is positively infectious. Aimed principally at the newcomer to astronomy, he makes even the most extraordinary concepts comprehensible. This is a wonderful companion to the night sky. As is the man himself.
