I watched but was very disappointed. To much waffle and not enough clips.

Sadly I have to agree with you both, I was expecting to see more of the ships and crew involvement.

Missed it but not much to miss according to your comments, there is an excellent book out 'Liverpool's last ocean liners' by john Shepherd (the history press) 16.99. I ordered a copy from the public library. Very good read.

Does the BBC do any live streaming of older show, as I'd like to see it, and we only get BBC international (and BBC News) here in Canada.

Another good read is The Liners of Liverpool, by Derek M. Whale, ISBN 0 907768 12 1. Luckily I managed to pick up a copy in a second-hand book shop for 3 a real bargain
