That documentary looks interesting DaveReidUK , however - rather annoyingly - I can't see it.

Despite my understanding that the BBC was a public broadcaster, that it was interested in promoting the UK, and me being in a Commonwealth country, I've just discovered the Beeb chooses to block any IP addresses not registered as being physically in the UK....

Grumble grumble, I only hope the links/content from here, that I posted on another thread, don't prove to be so unfriendly.

FWIW here's a link to 'our' Catalina: NZ Catalina Preservation Society

Another link to what, unfortunately, happened to the first one:
- not as lucky as yours!
