Last time they made one of these things about a flat-top the ship got decomissioned.

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

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

"Renegade Pictures is staffed by dedicated programme makers who take great pride in making shows we really care about, attracting top talent to be part of those shows, and delivering those shows to the highest standards.

Productions include global format hits Don't Tell The Bride, New Lives In The Wild, and Car SOS, mischievous shows with a purpose The Town That Took On The Tax Man, high-end documentary series The Tribe, The Nick, Warship , travel and adventure shows, Ben Fogle: The Great African Migration, Little British Isles With Alison Stedman, and Walking Through Time with Dr Tori Herridge, specialist factual treats , The Great Polar Bear Feast, Tony Robinson’s Victory In Europe, Drugs Live as well as developing new formats including Weight For Love and Used Car Wars."

Sounds very much like something to inspect the back of your eye lids to...:)
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.

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'

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.

You mean, like, real life...:) :)

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.;)

Thanks for the heads up, Ninja_Stoker. I have set my box to record that and look forward to watching it.

I do hope it's an improvement on Navy School, although I did enjoy parts of that series where it rose occasionally above waist level. Was unimpressed with 'the pillowcase incident', particularly with the way it was mismanaged, and the constant focus upon a handful of failures rather than the majority of those who succeeded. I feel I learned a great deal from that series ... about what the Royal Navy is not.
As an aside, the lad involved in the pillow incident did re-join, he was discharged unsuitable for the second time after 6 weeks!!

Why is it that you wait weeks for a programme to come on TV, then somebody telephones and talks through most of it?

Humbug rating RED

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 :(

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 :).
