    I'd rather not. There have been some great programmes made about the RN but this was not one of them. I think I'll vote for another programme worthy of the award.
  3. I liked it. It made lonely old pissbags angry.

    It's a coconut!

    Oi! Are you saying I'm old, lonely and smell of piss?!

    :shock: :wink:
  5. As a applicant i really enjoyed the series, it made a great thread, the old v new came out to play and that was good to follow too, but it is in a strong list, and i really enjoyed both the Strangeways series as it was good seeing family, (screws i'll have you know) and also the 'Land of the lost tiger' series was great. Then again i found the 'Idiot abroad' to be entertaining.

    My vote goes to the 'lost tiger' series, it could make a difference to the preservation of the species, which i find essential and it was great viewing IMO.
  6. Sorry Sol but in my view an idiot abroad walks that category by a country mile.
  7. I watched it as it was nice to see the old ship again... was on her 85 - 87 and the happiest ship I was on; but why did they constantly film the OD's??? Can't say it was riveting TV!
