Did anyone notice the shot of the Raphael in the 'Time Shift' programme 'The Men Who Built The Liners' last night?

She was moored in the background on a short clip of which appeared to be a Harrison boat being towed across a basin. I recognised her immediately and tracked back and paused just to make sure.

I have no idea where the location was though but as the programme was virtually all about the Clyde I would assume it was somewhere there. Or could have been the fitting-out basin at Bartrams, as she looked pristine. Perhaps someone can can locate by identifying the tug in the shot?

The programme is available to watch or download here:

The clip is at 28:38 mins:secs.
The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth!
