In honour of the 44th anniversary of QE2's launch, I was interviewed by the John Beattie show on BBC Radio Scotland, and it was broadcast today at around 12:45.  This means it should be about 45 minutes into the following recording of the programme.

'QE2 blazing the trail'
Full of good things, Rob

For info: on my counter it was 48' - 53'.
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.

Excellent interview, Rob. You had your wits about you and told your listeners some of the "story". I am sure you could have kept them spellbound for a far longer time  :)  !

Being radio, this recording can be played even outside the UK -- but sadly, only for the next seven days. Listen and enjoy!

4 years ago yesterday was when I dragged myself full of the cold down to a wet and windy Greenock esplanade to re-aquaint myself with the ship I had last seen sail down the river on November 1968.  It was definitely worth it! I can't believe how quickly the time has flown since then.
I was able to listen to the radio interview here in Kuwait. Really enjoyed it and you made some good points Rob. Well done.
