Tried to watch it, but found it very boring. There's nothing humble about Kate, and Mr Snow leaves me cold.

I agree it was a bit boring and somewhat predictable but that may be partly due to being rather familiar with the facts.
I’ll definitely watch/record the aircraft restoration progs and the B0B prog with James Holland on Friday who I think is an excellent and knowledgable miltary author.
But I thought it worth posting the HUs so folk can decide for themselves. :) EricT

Just watched the PBS programme on the Percival Mew Gull. It was shown at an earlier time today as well as this eve.
Thorougly enjoyed it .Much of it was shot at at Old Warden airfield (my favourite). Good to see inside the cockpit where all the old gauges were instantly recognisable to this vintage flight simmer. ;)

I keep missing the early bits.......I still have a question about 'EKL being faster than 'EXF on the same engine & prop.
I sat in 'EXf when she arrived at Blackbushe being pushed into Doug Bianchis hangar all those years ago......

Currently being reshown on PBS+1 on freeview.

One reason for it being less wrinkly than Moly could be that it has been re-built more times than Trigger's broom.

Might suggest some rebuilding of Moly the Poly to Mrs M................... :hide:

Chers,
