    Tomorrow (8th May) on BBC2 at 8.00pm, part of the 'Coast' programme will be discussing submarines. To quote from their site - "Naval historian Nick Hewitt searches out the remarkable remains of the submarines that threatened to sink Britain by strangling its sea trade. Why does a First World War German U-boat, its hull astonishingly intact, lie hidden in the mud of the Medway estuary, so close to London? And what is the story behind the Soviet sub which Nick discovers nearby? Its hull reveals what life was like for Russian submariners, preparing for the day when Britain's Cold War would turn hot."
    Having spent several hours with them filming in an indoor pool and around Aberdour Bay in Fife I'll be intrigued to see how many secs are shown!

    The sub section in the programme was OK as it stood - too much "rag and stick" stuff in the rest of it.
    So the bit that Andrew mentioned is still to be shown (or is already on the cutting room floor?!)

    PS I wonder if they know about the X craft wrecks that Andrew has covered elsewhere in this Forum?

    There was a whole programme about that Foxtrot on our local tv not too long back, that was much better, no sailing stuff, no Nick whatever his name is parading about onboard a yacht. I'll see if I can find a link to it, it must be still about somewhere.
