For many years in the 1990s David presented “Astronomy on The Den” on RTE 2 television, first with Zig & Zag and then with Ray D’Arcy, Dustin and friends. Later he moved to RTE 1 television and presented a monthly slot on “Live at 3” with Derek Davis and Thelma Mansfield. But he’s been on everything from the Late Late Show to thousands of local radio interviews (about 500 a year) so he’s no stranger to a microphone He’s been broadcasting and writing about space since the 1980s.  There’s quite a few TV interviews on our youtube channel  e.g. this one from his sold-out theatre-tour recently: https://youtu.be/p02pnt04sEU
