this is a very interesting three part documentary on HMS Queen Elizabeth
you can watch it on BBC 2 or on I Player, if you have it.
I must say i am fascinated with ships and thought this might be a good
one to watch. She is the Navy's new super aircraft carrier and will
carry the new F35 Lightening. Definitely worth a look see.

I don't think this would just appeal to the men, but women too, seeing as how many now serve in the Navy and on board HMS QE.
I watched the first episode last week and found it very interesting. Is it on again tonight emmie?
Question Author
you can catch all parts on I player, but Part 3 in on tonight 8pm BBC2.
Question Author
it is very interesting and when she docked at Portsmouth Harbour she dwarfed the other ships and the people all look like the Borrowers....
Watch in it now !
Watching it now - init!
It's a shame that Great Britain ruled the waves with the largest Navy in the World.
Now we have about 19 surface ships and 10
submarines (4 Nuclear and six attack) Lots of minesweepers and Fast Patrol Boats. We can't keep the English channel free of a Flotilla of rubber rafts containing illegal immigrants.
The new captain shown on tonights episode was sacked last year!
We shouldn't be funding new warships full stop.

diddlydo, of course we should..
The second ship of the type is in build. HMS Prince of Wales.
diddlydo If we don't keep our Armed Forces up to date and the best in the world, how do we defend ourselves?
Question Author
this one has taken 9 years to build, so i wonder how old Charles will be when it's commissioned.
Question Author
diddlydo can't get over that we are still a force to be reckoned with and that we have to have capability to fight alongside our American allies.
I remember the captain being sacked but I can't recall why or what became of him.
Question Author
Captain Kydd, that makes me smile.. if he was sacked i wonder what for..
The UK/America alliance is what makes potential trouble makers think again!
Jackdaw, the captain was sacked for misusing Navy vehicles. He resigned a few weeks later.
Question Author
what a pity, still rules are rules and the Navy is no exception.
It wasn't Captain Kyd who was sacked it was his replacement as Nelliemay said. Kyd is now a vice admiral 3 ranks higher than he was when on ship.
