Poor and all as RN machinery is reputed to be this loss was due to human causes.

    I was chatting to an RN CPO about this the other day.

    Apparently whichever gimp was responsible for signing off on the production of this program...signed over absolute editing rights to the people who filmed it.

    So what you had was hundreds of hours of footage...trawled for what people want to see.

    And unfortunately people aren't interested in military training...

    My youngest was quite keen on the Royal Navy...fit...tough...bright...great sportsman...keen to go to sea...travel...its all there...

    Then he watched that program you're talking about.

    He's applied to join the Army instead.
