According to the BBC Sir Patrick Moore has said British TV standards are deteriorating because the BBC is "run by women".

The Sky at Night host also described female newsreaders as "jokey" and called for separate channels to cater for the needs of the different sexes:

"I think it may eventually happen", the 84-year-old told the Radio Times.

A BBC spokesman described Sir Patrick as being one of TV's best-loved figures and said his "forthright" views were "what we all love about him".

The presenter said: "The trouble is the BBC now is run by women and it shows soap operas, cooking, quizzes, kitchen-sink plays. You wouldn't have had that in the golden days."

I used to watch Doctor Who and Star Trek, but they went PC - making women commanders, that kind of thing. I stopped watching.

"I would like to see two independent wavelengths - one controlled by women, and one for us, controlled by men."

He claimed that interesting programmes were screened too late at night, and said he would "rather be dead in a ditch" than appear on Celebrity Big Brother.

I am with him on Celebrity Big Brother but on the rest he has obviously spent too long looking through his telescope.
well he wouldnt like the welsh lib dems if you get kirsty in will he?
Peter, you obviously were not watching the same Trek as the rest of us... or the subtle sexual messages went completely over your head.

Trek has always had themes with Dominant women be it in the original series or the latter incarnations. In fact, it has always explored sexuality and the limits of sexuality from numerous episodes where races were controlled by female dominant societies through to androids having 'relations' with humans, holograms having 'relations' with humans, at least two sex-changes and more than a few Orion slave girls. An asexual society also featured in one episode that resulted in one Wil Riker falling in love with a being that was half man half woman. Need I go on.

Gene Roddenberry seemed to like the female dominant theme as he made other TV series and films where future civilisations on earth were run by women and men were used as slaves and for 'pleasure'.

I remember watching a TV interview with an original Trek crew member talking about how back in the 1960s he pulled up at lights next to a leather-clad biker who had a very dominant looking leather clad woman sitting behind him and, almost afraid to glance at them, he realised that it was his boss Roddenberry and his wife!

Here, have a read of this:


I think the truth is now coming out Peter. You were obviously 'confused' as a youngster by the mixed messages you were receiving from Trek and this has resulted in your confused lust for power as a councillor and AM. You're not sure whether to be the boss or the follower? ;-)
You should not confuse Patrick Moore's views (which I put up purely for amusement/outrage purposes) with mine. The words in italics are a quotation from the great astrologer and UKIP supporter.
You've just lost the support of the Trekker's section of the Swansea Lib Dems (Meet first Monday of the month, the Uplands Tav - we're the ones in the uniforms and have the die cast model of the Enterprise on the table.).


Is there no politician that will represent our cause?
I think you'll find that Patrick Moore is an astronomer not an astrologer.
Is he an astrologer or an astronomer?
What do you mean Finigan, I have watched every episode of every series of Star Trek and have even referred to it on this blog.
Shock horror a post not attacking Mike German in some way, has Peter Black finally put away his backstabbing knife?
What? Even Voyager?
Astronomer - he can tell you where the stars are but not what affect where they are has on what you will do!
Even Enterprise despite the dreadful theme music.

Anonymous 6.55pm: backstabbing normally implies being underhanded and deceitful. What I am doing is up front and in the open. I am saying what I think, which even you must agree is a refreshing change for a politician.
Anonymous 6:55pm: Rather than stab him in the back, I think that you will find that Peter has stabbed Mike in the Chest in full view of everybody - several times over.
> the great astrologer and UKIP supporter
Sadly, only one of these descriptions is inaccurate.
> "I would like to see two independent wavelengths - one controlled by women, and one for us, controlled by men."

He seems to be getting his wish - Russell T Davies (a man after his own heart) is building his own empire within the BBC, judging by the way he has dominated the Radio Times.

And they say Swansea boys lack ambition!
