In the recent drama on ITV starring David Jason in an old submarine, did anyone recognise the "Russian cargo vessel" which came across the sub when she first surfaced at the start of the programme, a few people will be surprised at the drama makers choice of vessel.

Hi Paul,
Its the Bran Sands owned by Northumbria Water and operates out of the Tyne, Wear & Tees as a sludge vessel.

Did not notice what the cargo vessel was but the naval frigate attacked was definately a Belgian Wielingen class frigate. I was looking forward to watching it but I can't say I was impressed with the story to be honest.

Telly and media have a licence to do what they want.

If you look at the Plymouth city website, you'll see pictures of trains with overhead electric wires, and the trains are the ones just introduced on the West Coast main line between London and Glasgow..! I can assure that Plymouth will one day be electrified....3006 is more likely..!

I haven't had a telly for 7 years....now you'll start to appreciate why..!!

Cheers,

Rushie

I thought it was quite good. I missed the start, but soon picked it up. However it did get confusing and it was sad that David Jason died :mad:

What you mean it is not real, and that submarine just appeared and the russians hand it over just like that during the cold war.

you just can not trust what you see on tv now a days. (*))

I was impressed my wife managed to sit through 3 hours of it and she made more sense of it than I did. I thought if she liked it we could finally watch my loooooooooong version of Das boot......sadly I am told this is not going to happen. :(
