    As long as they don't use the same TV company that made the series about the baby sailors!

  6. It looks as if this one was made by Renegade Pictures (part of Warner Bros). Make up your own mind about their output:

    I think many of us will be watching behind the sofa after the the last nightmare debacle.

    Sadly there was a decent programme called Devonport, the Inside Story released around the same time which was sadly overshadowed by the toe-curling farce of Royal Navy School.

  9. People need to bear in mind that it's going to be about people and people's stories. 'Human interest' rather than 'Ship's Daily Routine'
  10. I've no doubt the lists will come out such as how many sausages eaten (fnarr fnarr), spuds consumed, how many football pitches fit on the flight deck etc.

    They should do interesting facts like how many amongst the mixed crew were shagging out of watch, how many tons of poo the waste treatment plant had to cope with, how much booze was consumed, the total amount taken in fines at the skippers table etc. Far more interesting.

  12. When looking forward to programmes such as these I find it best not to have any expectations and so I'm rarely disappointed. Today's R.N. is so different to the one I left nearly 40 years ago I can watch with childlike interest and neither be shocked or amazed.;)
  13. As an aside, the lad involved in the pillow incident did re-join, he was discharged unsuitable for the second time after 6 weeks!!

    Was the first discharge premature?

    As Eric Morcambe once said 'What do you think of it so far?'

    My opinion? not three bad.
  16. Why is it that you wait weeks for a programme to come on TV, then somebody telephones and talks through most of it?

  17. HMS Ocean literally never changes! Was on deployment nearly a decade ago...ship was exactly the same!

    Yep, still grey.

    Scarily I helped conduct it's pre-sea acceptance trails and checks as it came out of build - Now they are calling it old :(
  19. That young stoker that said 'there's the queen...and it was signed before I was born!' The photo was signed in 1998. That's when I started to feel old! I see Paddy is back on board though. That's nice :).
