FUTURES interview and who better than Professor Bob Nichol, director of the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation at the University of Portsmouth. We took Professor Nichol up to the dress circle in the main auditorium and did a quick piece about what the day was truly all about for the children who came, and it really was quite an inspiring thing to witness first hand. After having completed our day of filming, our time had come, it was time to speak to the man of the hour...well, day really, it was time to speak to Tim Peake. The whole thing was very short and sweet, Gemma interviewed him while Harry and I stayed behind camera. It was quite a surreal moment since I never thought I’d ever meet an actual astronaut, and yet here I was, sitting opposite Tim Peake and joking about the weather while we set up to film him. So yes, if you’d told me I was going to meet Tim Peake a year ago I wouldn’t have believed you. But it’s hard to dispute the truth... KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 120 December 2016 | 35
