It was  a nice programme to see, though why they need to have a child giving her point of view is beyond me,Makes you wonder where on earth they find these people. Half expected to see the famous shot of the Concorde & QE2. I bet the stewardess have a few tales to tell

 Not that Concorde ever took my fancy, But friends on my first QE2 tip in 86, flew back with the view it was over all to quickly and that they wished they had stayed onboard and sailed back.

QE2 - The Final Voyage, by BBC TimeWatch

Morning Everyone.

It has been a while since I posted a message to the site. I have been occupied with other things since I left school.
I have the biggest request to ask those people who might be able to help me.

Many of you may remember the programme that was viewed on BBC One and BBC Two about five years ago, which was called "QE2 - THE FINAL VOYAGE" by BBC TimeWatch.
I only saw a little bit of the program and then I only managed to find it on youtube last summer and was able to watch the whole of it. In September last year, it suddenly wasn't available on youtube any more. During these last few months I have been trying very hard to find the right people to talk to about it. I have been on the telephone to BBC and spoken to several people. Some have been helpful, some haven't been helpful.

If anyone has a copy of the programme or if anyone knows certain people, who could help me how I could obtain a copy of the program, it would be greatly appreciated if you let me know. Or if anyone has a copy of it, that they don't want anymore, I would very much like to have it and treasure always.

If any one has any information, please let me know.

All the Best

Which begs the question, Why repeat ? not that any of us are complaining.
It might spur some interest into find out what exactly is happening and perhaps grasp a new audience?

Thank you, Myles, for your post.  I am in agreement that perhaps the programme's audience will want to pursue what has become of our QE2 and interest newcomers in her history and fate.  Do you or anyone know if the programme can be viewed out of the UK ?  June

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

June, have you got a VPN for your PC/tablet/phone? If you have you can watch the BBC IPlayer using it - if not they are easy to get - try my-expat-network.co.uk, that's the one that I use - it takes 5 minutes to set up then you can watch anything on the Iplayer or any other UK networks. It's the only way you can watch any UK TV programmes outside of the UK itself.

Just looked at the screen grabs from before, I'm assuming it might be a slightly edited version of the past one with Mr Saville airbrushed from proceedings!

I had the same thought... I hope not though, you can't and shouldn't change history!  This also goes for the hundreds of hours of other BBC programming that he'll be in.  We were talking about this yesterday - there's a great BBC Documentary about the relaunch of the trains in the 70s and 80s, the adverts were all with him in them, and it would be a shame to never see this again.

Those adverts, Rob, are readily available on YouTube so the darker side of history is still available in those instances; it probably therefore will be in terms of QE2 as well even if the BBC would prefer to re-write history.

Enjoying watching the programme and good to see our very own Cunarder Man at the Captain's Cocktail Party.

Thank you Lynda, it was such a surprise when we saw the programme first. It was great to be a part of history and we are all proud to play our part in keeping the legend alive.

Hi IainM - Thank you very much for the information on how to get the BBC programming.  Unfortunately, I was unable to set it up in time to see our QE2, but I shall set it up and be prepared in the future.  June

June, it will be on iPlayer for at least a week so you still have time to figure it out
