Pete
Thank you for this
A great find!
QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

Great find Pete - now all I need to do is remember how to programme sky plus to record this unless fingers crossed it is on i-player.

For anyone else who may be unable to access or hear the progamme on iplayer,
it's so very good that I have begun to transcribe some of it!
When I've done more I'll post it here!
'Fraid it will be without sound effects tho' and like QE2, there could be a bit of a wait...!
life's full of 'stuff to do' at the moment!
Rosie.

Thank you, Rosie, for sending that link. I really enjoyed listening to that programme! There is so much truth in the voices of the interviewees... and in the whistle of QE2...

A far better broadcast than the film about her last voyage, I found. But then, the pictures on radio are so often so much better than those on television...

Thanks so much for posting Rosie.  Hearing her voice again still sends shivers up my spine.  I have to agree with Commodore Burton-Hall describing her as "sexy" when viewed head on while in drydock.  She has the most fabulous curves, functional too, that we will never see again.
