Re: The Elephant In The Room

YES votes now 30% so keep voting. Don't think that multiple votes from a single address would work?

Oh, and the "YES" bar is a nice shade of Bluebird Blue; don't let the Yellow bar stay ahead!

Re: New BBC Documentary

Mixed views on this programme by me but, as the volume of hits on the website proves, the subject is obviously of immense interest to many people - and many people well below the age of 40 I would suggest too! Thought the contributions from Anthony Robinson and John Pearson were excellent and very m...

Re: Nomadic, Titanic & other historic vessels

A little time has now passed since the SS Shieldhall has been in the news.

Re: New BBC Documentary

Must look again t...

Re: The Vulcan XH558 & General Aviation Thread

Saw this on the BBC site earlier today and thought, initailly, it might have something to do with finding Sir Ernest's ship Endurance ! Not sure what is the best time for launching a new fundraising appeal, but news that the Shackleton Preservation Trust is planning to seek £5M for the retun to flig...

Donald Stevens talk on K7 Saturday 16th Feb.

Just noticed this today, I'm afraid, as I could have rearranged my weekend to attend (got to be at work). Donald Stevens, who recently published a book on the development of Bluebird CN7, is giving a talk at The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu tomorrow (Saturday 16th Feb. at 7.30pm) as part of the...

New BBC Documentary

Just noticed this on another forum. The BBC has commissioned a Scottish independent production company - Tern TV - to make a new documentary about Donald Campbell.

Re: Dead Metal

Continuing on a railway theme, I noticed this item on the BBC News on New Year's Eve. The group that is recreating "The Brighton Belle" is making great progress with much of the work being carried out by carriage specialists Rampart at Derby and a couple of the vehicles are already at the group's ba...
