Dr Pieter Morpurgo - Speaker Dr Pieter Morpurgo

Pieter Morpurgo worked for the BBC for 30 years as a producer and director, working on many programmes ranging from Nationwide to That’s Life, Panorama, Children in Need, Crimewatch, Watchdog and many others. One of his main roles was to produce The Sky at Night programme for virtually the whole of the 80s and 90s, making close to 250 episodes. Although mostly made in the studio, there were some 50 films. His talk at the Guildford Astronomical Society on 3 April will be based on the making of those films and how the programme is put together.
