Did you catch it? Fascinating (and quite emotional at the end)! Did you recognise anybody in the 'Restoration Team'?

The Team at Duxford (and in America) was lead by John Romain, with Mo Overall and others. (It's worth watching on the Ch 5 equivalent of iPlayer).

Not strictly an 'Aviation' Programme as such, but tonight's first Programme in the series 'Britain's Hidden Heritage' (1/3) BBC1 at 7.00 pm includes:

'....guest reporter John Sergeant searches for the last remaining Avro Vulcan bomber aircraft' (just as long as he doesn't do any dancing!!!!!!!!!!!).

What a waste of time that was. Light on facts, heavy on bullshit, and gave the impression everything is done. No mention of the need for ongoing funding at all. ~x( ~x(

I wouldn't have expected them to mention the funding tbh, and although I enjoyed it and it was aired for longer than I expected I thought the filming very standard and could have been much more punchy - but then it wasn't designed to be
attention grabbing only a small part of a larger programme.

I agree with both Sooty and RLN it could have been better and more to the point of yes its a fine peice of heritage but it needs lots of money.
But the BBC is the BBC and i'm sure if the funding had been mentioned then it would have been edited out.
