Tuesday 6th Feb, 8pm, Channel 5, UK.

I presume this is the programme that the QE2 story and it's members and moderators has been helping extensively with since last summer?

Rob, it does look like it is the QE2 programme that Chanel 5 interviewed people from the QE2 Story and contacts that they met at conference.

I had been interviewed but the producer has not been in contact to let me know that the programme was on next week, or if I will be in the programme, but as I am neither crew or worker, unlikely I will be in next week's episode. 

I am disappointed to see that they have pursued the theme of looting and strikes. The shipyard workers of John Brown's built a magnificent ship and that is what should be remembered.  But we can only wait and see the programme they produce and hope it does the ship justice.

I was so annoyed when they told me they were going at the angle that the original turbines were disastrously bad. I dragged Stephen Payne over and got him to vouch for the fact that they were anything but, and took the ship further than both previous queens combined.  I'm not sure I'm going to be able to watch...

Someone had better watch and tell those of us out of BBC range about this programme after it has been aired...

First I start working on my QE2 mini cartoon series, now the whole Forum is part of bringing a TV program on the ship together. Heh, what a coincidence! NOT.  ;D

I like.

Hi Isabelle

You probably know by now but it's on a channel independent of the BBC so I'm not sure whether it'll be available overseas  :( , have to hope that someone makes an illegal copy and uploads it to YouTube without being caught! Or you and others overseas can use a VPN to spoof your location...

Both Michael and I were instrumental in making contacts between persons to be interviewed and the program producers.  I did not hear anything either about the program being aired.  Many times, here at least, those involved are notified as to when a program will be aired.  I do hope someone will be able to watch it and see what is actually in the program.

I contacted the producer this morning to ask if he will be contacting the people interviewed, especially those contact that he got through the QE2 Story and the conference.  He said that he is working on editing the second part but will be contacting those interviewed. 

I was interviewed in October for the documentary and he said I would be in the first programme.

If not you can try a VPN to spoof your location to be in the UK as these catch up services (for example) are often region or country locked.

You could try a VPN (when the programme is available on the Channel 5 catch-up service next week) and set your location to the UK and it might work. There are several free VPNs out there for different devices.
