music of Sir Patrick playing the xylophone along with the space aliens,
telescopes, and an out-of-this-world trip:

To a small degree they are. Each issue of THE SKY AT NIGHT has a CD
on which can be found one, sometimes two, of the programs, along with
free astronomy software and firmware updates for Meade and Celestron
GOTO scopes, pictures and other misc. items.
I buy my copy of THE SKY AT NIGHT at a local Borders (a bookstore
chain) monthly and have every issue since Vol.1, No.1.
