The saddest part of the documentary for me is when Ian makes the final Cunard ship's log entry.
First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last stepped foot and sailed on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw the seagoing QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008. Visited QE2, in her new life, in Dubai back in January 2020.

For that final log signing there was just the Captain, me, an officer of the watch and two people from the BBC filming it. We wanted to capture that moment for the film but couldn't get the Bridge to ourselves all morning. When things were quiet we filmed him completing the log book with a queue of new owners representatives banging on the main bridge door demanding to be let in!

Great documentary, I loved it.

And great musical choice as well (the sublime "L'Enfant" by Vangelis during the first three minutes).

Been listening to Vangelis many times while on board QE2… and I was told he had travelled on her a couple of times as well.

BBC Timewatch - QE2: Final Voyage
Video on YouTube

Hello Mods - Sorry! This may well be a duplicate and please do feel free to delete this post.
I would if I could but I can't!
I seem to remember that I posted it (or similar) last year!   :-[
Just wondering whether anyone watched the 'Final Voyage' on the UKTV Yesterday Channel, 2 days ago?
Was it this BBC video that was shown then? Rosie.

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.
