Lawson/Moore [Jan. 14th, 2013|11:08 am]
Tony Grist
We didn't learn much we didn't already know from Mark Lawson's interview with Patrick Moore. Patrick was old school and- like the number 11 bat he was- simply blocked all questions about his emotional life, his religious views, his politics (known to be blimpish; I think he regretted revealing them in his autobiography) and (oddly enough) whatever it was he did in the RAF during the War. When Lawson pushed him about the God thing he gave us a story about the local vicar dropping two catches off his bowling.

Colonel Blimp was a character created by the cartoonist David Low in the 1930s. He later featured in a Powell and Pressburger movie. He was, honourable, decent and deeply conservative with a small "c".

I will never forget the first time I saw him. He was being interviewed about the significance of Pluto losing his status as a planet. It was like seeing someone transported from another century and way of life.

He was a national institution- and greatly loved.
