      Copied from Facebook..

      BBC2 tonight, 2100hrs..The sinking of the Laconia, torpedoed by a U boat in 1942. Part 1 tonight, part 2 tomorrow night.

      David Forrest It was very good, I thought. It is a story that seems to be often left out of the history books not least because you can't categorise "Goodies and Baddies". Was the U boat skipper trying to save women and children or Italian POW's. (The Poles were chosen as "baddies" this time, I notice!)

      Richard J Huggett I thought it was good as well David..don't forget part 2 tonight. I guess you'll have your answer then..

      Richard J Huggett Well David...what did you think? Personally I enjoyed it very much indeed, shame about the fate of the boat and crew though.

      Tomorrow night at 1930hrs is the story of those who survived the Laconia.

      David Forrest I liked it a lot. I think it was true to the real events too, as far as I know. The shots of them all on deck showed how impractical it was to rescue many survivors and yet Doenitz ended up answering war crimes because of the Laconia messag...

      Richard J Huggett I took it that Doenitz offered the skipper a choice of a desk job or going back to sea, the skipper chose the return to patrols, with fatal consequences.

      The U boat (U-156) was in reality a Type 1Xc, the one in film was a pretty good likeness I thought, it was in fact a wooden film prop.

      Take a look at http://www.uboat.net/forums/read.php?4%2C52568%2C52568 there's some information of the film making there.

      Don't forget tonight, 1930hrs, BBC2...the story of the survivors.
