Yes Paul, i also watched this episode. An hour well spent.
This programme was made for any layman to easy understand in 1 hour the history of Hood and i can only give credit to all involved, irrespective of your depth or lack of knowledge. It did not dwell on her demise.
It was the final of 4 episodes called Clydebuilt, the ships that made the Commonwealth.
What really pulls these histories together is the superlative presentation by the enigmatic Glaswegian actor, and now presenter, David Hayman, who has been around longer than the Clyde itself, ably assisted, in this episode, in part by historian and author Ian Johnston whose tomes include Clydebank Battlecruisers and The Battleship Builders, both excellent.
How fortunate that in David we have a presenter with a real ability to succinctly and eloquently portray his subject matter, from Hood to Clyde Puffers, with none of those awful attendant adjectives and gushing ill informed nonsenses.
Hope we will see a lot more of him in the future, but in the meantime he currently co stars in 'Taboo' as Brace, which is getting into its stride after 2 episodes. Can't wait for the next 6.
A full broadside. The traditional English salute.
