Strathardle 73/74 and BBC

Hi all,
Was on the Strathardle from Jan 73 to May 74.Sometime during that time two cadets arrived on board ( 1 eng. 1 deck). They brought with them a BBC film crew. Apparently BBC were doing a series of documentaries about apprenticeships in the UK. Anyway, when I left the ship and got back to UK (via Transiberian railway with the 2nd mate), we went to the offices and while there were shown a copy of the program. I've been trying to get information about the program but have drawn a blank with both the BBC and P&O.
I was wondering if either of the featured cadets were members of this site and could help me with at least the name of the program.
That poor BBC crew didn't know what hit them. Someone should have informed them about the social niceties of living on board a hard working/playing ship.
In hope,
Geoff.

Hi Geofff,
Not heard of this before but there is a video of Strathardle arrives on YouTube I think taken in London, also I think they may be one on P&O heritage.
I was on Mataura in 75 with film crew for condor advert, lovely ladies, and filmed from helicopter as well, but cannot find any footage.
There is a Cargo ships of the P&O group on Facebook.

Regards Bob.

Hi Bob,
Yes, I've seen that U-tube film before, it's the Ardle's arrival in UK after being built in Japan. I've had a look on the Heritage site but can't find any videos. It's funny that they showed us the program but can't find any record. The BBC were "helpful" in that they gave me a site where I could look through the program schedule for every day 73/74. Have tried searches, but without the name of the program I seem to be stumped.
Regards, Geoff.

Hi Bob,
Cheers, but none of the ships I was on. Looked on the site but couldn't find anything.
