Personal Quote:

He was ahead of his time in so many ways. Quite apart from artificial satellites there were other things too. A great science fiction writer, a very good scientist, a great prophet and a very dear friend, I'm very, very sad that he's gone. (On Arthur C. Clarke) See more »

Trivia:

In 1957 on the programme, The Sky at Night (1957), he opened his mouth to speak and a fly flew in. Ever the professional, Moore swallowed the fly in front of millions of viewers and carried on with the show. He later told his family of his ordeal, and got no sympathy from his mother, telling him "it was worse for the fly"! See more »
