Gerry Anderson PDF Print E-mail

This week Northern Ireland lost one of its best known radio presenters. BBC presenter Gerry Anderson died at the age of 69 after a long illness. You may be wondering why I am writing this on an astronomy website!

Gerry was actually quite a good friend to the society, in his years of good health past chair Mia Hanna would regularly be on his radio show talking about our society and advertising our events.

Have a listen to the first phone in she done with him, very funny! 

Gerry also hosted our BBC Stargazing Live Event in Derry/Londonderry in 2012. Below are some pictures with our members:
