I remember a documentary on the Regulating Branch in the early 90's when they tracked down a young sailor for the crime of being gay. Can't remember what it was called but Channel four I think.

I think that may have been the Cutting Edge "Navy Blues" series.

I loved the way that the Wessex 5 was maneuvered out of the hanger by taking it along the waist!
Talking of which, was it the same 'Humphrey' (other pigeon names are available!) for the entire life (when embarked) of the ship or did other pigeons get embarked and adopted?

Well, I've just watched that. I'm a bit confused. She came across as a Blue Peter presenter on acid, sponsored by the Guardian - then at the very end, spouted some brilliant stuff.
Bizarre.
It did seem to roll pretty hard from for to against, till the summary. Made it an interesting watch I think. Fun, with a touch of bat-shit-crazy
