With the silent reporting from I think Richard Baker could this have been filmed off a news report?

Hi Bruce - It is Richard Baker doing what may well have been a live broadcast.
Heading off to find out more - i.e stuff about TV coverage (with sound!) of the Launch!

That's incredible! Shot from on board too!

Richard Baker's broadcast from the unfinished aluminium deck of the QE2 must surely survive somewhere?

Rob
Here's an interesting link! :)
https://www.theqe2story.com/forum/index.php?topic=3546.0

This needs a plugin - not something my laptop has!
Is this the same as another BBC recording - or is it one that belongs with the silent film above?

and another linkā€¦
