Sadly Scotland only according to my program guide --- unless you have access to satellite perhaps. A pity these regional programs are usually very good.

It will be on iPlayer though, I believe. Wonder why it's Scotland only, that's a shame. The most famous ship building area in Britain.

For those of you in the US...if you go to the "beeb" web site.....sometimes you can find these programs 2-3 days later... sometimes you have to know the EXACT name, time of original broadcast, etc...sometimes....front page.

I watched this program on Monday, which focussed on the Cutty Sark built in Dumbarton in 1869.  I liked how the program followed the story of the ship from her birth to where she is now, Greenwich. Looking forward to next week's program.
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

 Tonight on BBC4 (UK only?) Clyde built ships   ''The ships that built the Commonwealth'', doesn't include QE2 but worth watching I'm sure..

Hi June, looks as though this is a (nother) repeat programme by our BBC, however broadcast nationwide this time & not just for Scotland, 1st in the series was the Cutty Sark, next week I believe is HMS HOOD, I'm sure they will be out there on Youtube somewhere, everything always is.

I enjoyed the programmes but felt that they were about twice as long as they should have been. Worth watching
