'Ship Pro' posted a lovely new photo of QE2 to serve as a contrast to the QE2 shown in the Timewatch programme.

The photo, and the ensuing discussion, has been merged into the topic below.

I still have the QE2 Timewatch saved on my computer. It's great to watch and I never get tired of it! :)

Timewatch: QE2 - the Final Voyage

It is Tuesday morning 5 August - 00.50am.  For anyone still awake - the above programme is about to be repeated on BBC4 at 00.55am (12.55am) in about 5 minutes' time.  As we have just remembered all those who fought in the First World War and the many who did not return, this film reminds us of the excellent service QE2 gave in the more recent Falklands Conflict.  A timely reminder of her loyal service to this country.

Further to my post at some unearthly hour earlier this morning, the above programme is currently available on BBC4 iplayer until next Sunday (10th August).  It can also be viewed in HD.  Thankfully it is the edited version - i.e. without the Jimmy Saville interview.  So if you are away on holiday and have access to the internet - enjoy until Sunday (last day available).

This is being televised on BBC FOUR (UK) tomorrow evening (Sunday, 5th October 2014)
at 19.00 hrs BST.
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.

Yoy may already be aware, but our QE2's Final Voyage is being shown again tonight (Sunday 5 October) at 7.00pm (19.00 hrs) on BBC4.  For any 'night owls' it is repeated at 01.50hrs again on BBC4 in the early hours of tomorrow (Monday) morning.  I am unsure whether this late repeat will in fact be a signed programme for any deaf viewers.  It is repeated again in the early hours of next Wednesday morning  (8 October) at 01.30 hrs again on BBC4.

Apologies if this is a repeat post, but it is done in extreme haste.  Tissues at the ready!!

Thanks for the heads-up Gill - and everyone else. I've not seen this programme yet, so TIVO on standby!

Really enjoyed the program. 1st time I have seen it - but it won't be the last! We've now got a recording (for personal use only of course!)

It was great to see some faces I recognised from my time on board - John Duffy of course, but also Glyn Owen - who I used to work with in the Engine Room during the days of steam - and others.

It was also interesting to note some of the other changes since I was on board - some more obvious than others and not just to the ship herself. When I did my apprenticeship and subsequently during my first years at sea it was uncommon to see a woman in what were traditionally male dominated professions, particularly as Engineers, or Deck Officers - noted from the Noon announcement from the Officer of the Watch. (Long may it continue).

The same happened last time if I remember correctly? :)

  Fantastic!  BBC Four HD didn't exist back when this was first broadcast, so now I have a chance to grab a high quality recording.  Now they just need to re-broadcast the best ever QE2 TV programme - "QE2, The Last Great Liner" - https://www.theqe2story.com/forum/index.php/topic,4820.0.html
   

I still think Alan Whicker and his 4 part Fast Boat to China..was the best ever..granted some 30 years ago..but a timeless classic
From the moment you first glimpsed the Queen,
 you just knew you were in for a very special time ahead.!

While watching some QE2 related videos on YouTube tonight, I came across this splendid documentary. Heard about this a couple years ago, but was unable to watch it after during some thorough searching. This was very enjoyable to watch and am glad I was able to find it! Very emotional seeing Captain McNaught signing the log book for the last time.

To those who would like to watch it, below is the link.
