In an interview in the evening standard in January 2007, he's asked to describe himself and he dryly says 'tall'. He is asked how his mum would describe him, and he says 'tall'. Since he was born around 1925, 6ft 1/2 in would be relatively 'taller' than he would be in today's currency, so I could buy 6 ft 1/2 in and that he stood out. You can tell he's big, seated. He's always had that slower - moving look with his gestures. But I'm going for 6 ft 1. I don't see him as the type to bother to stand up straight with all that stomach fat, even for a measurement.

Seemed like a big guy, the height mentioned would be very believable.

Great idea to add Patrick Moore! I didn't have a clue how tall he was - until today!
6ft and half-an-inch goes in the box!
