Astronomy Manual - BBC Radio 4 Midweek

Following the successful release of Haynes' Astronomy Manual (Foreword by Dr Brian May, Introduction by Sir Patrick Moore) author Jane A Green was a guest on BBC's Radio 4's Midweek programme with Libby Purves on Wednesday 3rd November. This provided an excellent opportunity to talk about the book and the wonders of astronomy to a wide audience of over 2,000,000 listeners. The programme which also featured Michele Dotrice, Jo Wilding and Ronald Blythe is accessible on BBC iPlayer.

Book sales are now soaring with foreign editions in the pipeline and requests for illustrated presentations flowing in.

A giant leap for Astronomy outreach.
