Down Under Comes Up LIVE

Fifty years ago today, due to a launch malfunction of a communications satellite, the BBC ran an opportunistic program with the first live TV broadcast from the UK to the Satellite Tracking Station in Carnarvon, WA. And so I got to appear on live TV.

Me third from left in the front row.

UPDATE: More at, including a tidied up summary video. I'm on screen about the 3:50 mark.

UPDATE 2: Now in colour, me in the middle with the shadow of the microphone on my chest.
