5.0 out of 5 stars All you need to know about astronomy but were afraid to ask, 14 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just couldn't put this book down when it came.

Ever wondered why planets are spherical? What would happen if the sun stopped working? Or, what should we do if ET rings? Then this book is for you.

Back in 2011, The Sky At Night broadcast their 700th episode. This was a special show devoted to asking viewers anything they found puzzling about the universe. The response was so huge that the team decided to produce a book so that many of the remaining questions could be answered, in this case by Sir Patrick Moore and Chris North.

The book is divided into 54 sections of astronomy such as the planets, space navigation, tides, life elswhere and asteroids and comets. Each of the questions answered, as the book says are in such a way so that everybody could pick it up and enjoy. There are no way out mathematical equations in here!

I have learnt so much reading this and in many cases it is mind blowing to find out what our scientists are learning about our universe. A facinating book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Recycled tide clock, 25 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ashortwalk recycled tide clock
Worked well for a year, then i noticed that the battery had leaked and the clock had stopped working. Think i will get a new one but will buy a better quality clock. Shame as it's made of old plastic cups.

3.0 out of 5 stars Warm, but one problem, 26 Jan. 2011

Agree with Gladicus, after just a week the finger pads started to come away. They are warm though but i have doubts over how long they will last.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fragile, handle with care!, 22 Mar. 2010

After just two months of use the rubber 'L' shaped connecter split and came away revealing the wires underneath. I had to try to glue it together but that didn't work. Cheap rubbish!

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking clock shame it doesn't work, 20 Feb. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice big face on this clock, you can see the time from some distance. Temperature works fine as does the moon phases but alas although i live in a big city this clock won't pick up the time signal. I have a watch which is set by radio control and that works fine so i know it's not where i live. So i have set it manually which is ok as i like the look of it, but it's just a shame it doesn't do what it says on the tin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Have they been edited?, 11 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Maybe someone in the know can tell me? At the end of a couple of the episodes, during the credits i have noticed Eli listed, yet he didn't appear in the espisode i had just watched. Makes me wonder if it had been edited by some health and safety idiot at Playback. Other than this however, it is a great series.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much better, 8 Mar. 2009
I used to have a pocket FM/MW radio to take out with me on my delivery rounds. There were many MW stations i liked but had no hope of getting a good reception. I was always looking out for a DAB pocket radio but it all came down to how much battery power it used. Most of the time these radios ate batteries for fun. Not this little gem of a radio. This one has a battery built in which you charge up at the electric socket, just like a mobile phone. The reception is crystal clear and i can hear my Radio 5 live speech programmes in absolute clarity. I really can't think of a bad thing to say about this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Family entertainment of the highest kind, 23 Feb. 2009
I have now bought series 1 to 4 from Amazon uk and each one is a joy to watch. Get all the family around to watch like my family used to in the 70's!

By the way, those who want series 5-9 might like to know that you can get them on region 2 from the German Amazon website. Warner Brothers say they have no plans to release the remaining series in the UK. Apart from the German writing on the packaging it's just the same as the UK releases!
