Mark is an astronomer, broadcaster, author and all round science fan. At the age of ten he saw Saturn through a telescope which ignited a passion inside him, a passion that has grown steadily ever since. Since those early days, Mark has inspired millions of viewers to get out and enjoy the night sky through his role as a presenter on the RTS nominated show BBC Stargazing LIVE. His passion for reaching out to a new audience has found him working on The One Show, the Alan Titchmarsh Show, This Morning and more recently Good Morning Britain. He is also a regular face on BBC Breakfast and Five News and a regular voice on Radio Five Live. When not working on TV or Radio shows, he is most likely to be writing about it having published four books with five more due for publication in 2019 or performing his sell out theatre show Spectacular Science at theatres up and down the country. In 2018 his local university, the University of East Anglia awarded Mark an honorary doctorate for his work in science outreach.
