    Warship life on Board - Series one and Two were brilliant - Captain Eleanor Stack (series 1) and captain Tom Trent (series 2) Brilliant leadership skills regardless of how you think the producers wanted to portray our Navy

    I remember the Warship series from decades ago which I enjoyed a lot. Upon seeing this thread, I decided to watch the entire series from one to Three, 12 episodes to date. Series one and two were aboard the HMS Duncan, a Type 45 Destroyer. I found the nine episodes extremely enjoyable and shows the Royal Navy to be a highly professional and effective service. Moving on to series three and the Type 23 Frigate. The personnel still, in my view, show a very high level of professionalism. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the ship. First appearances show a rust bucket. This is followed by a lengthy series of system and equipment failures. It is a shame as it has surprised me to see how continual budget cuts to our armed forces are displayed for all to see. Great series though and I would recommend to anybody with an interest in Naval activities. My5.๐Ÿ˜Š

    I cannot promise to finish one project before starting another. I know, I tried.

    Keep your eye open for it, I have just checked it was originally on Tues 18th BBC2 at 9pm. and is to be repeated tonight 20th BBC2 at 11.15. If it helps the programme is called Why Ships Crash.
    Best of luck in finding it.

    That's annoying, it's not on in Wales. I'd liked to have seen it. With any luck it will be on some other time here.

    Another one to watch and repeated tonight on BBC2, Ships that Crash and this is about the container ship blocking the Suez canal for days and the financial and trading impact on large chunks of the world.
    The investigation into causes of the accident I found fascinating.
    I hope this is one of a series of similar programs.

    Different programme. Telling the last hours of the Bismark tonight. Sure we've seen similar versions before, umpteen times. My question is - how did a few tankers and other cargo ships appear in amongst the combatants? Were we expected to think they were the Home Fleet?

    I apologise my earlier post described solar gizmos, it should have read sonar gizmos. We should really consider that it is television and as such tongue in cheek. God help us if we crewed our battle fleet with technicians that pull a switch and cut out comms to the bridge instead of stopping a sonar problem.
    Looking forward to the next episode,

    I thought it a disaster that the helicopter search ran out of solar gizmos available to drop. Naval cutbacks?
    As I mentioned last week I really do wonder how much of these dramas are invented by the TV company to make a boring tour of duty look exciting. Their Lordships at the admiralty must be cringing.
    Regards ChrisG
