When you're holding people's attention, I feel you must give them high-quality ingredients. They deserve nothing but your best. And if they need information, get it, cross-check it, and try to be right. Do not waste their time; do not enjoy the ego trip of being onstage.
The most watched programme on the BBC, after the news, is probably 'Doctor Who.' What has happened is that science fiction has been subsumed into modern literature.

I envy people with dreams and passions, but I don't think that way. I still don't have a 'bliss' to follow.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
