Re: Mighty Ships

not what my source says

When's Kentucky coming up on UK TV?

Unfortunately the episode "Kentucky" isn't on the air any time soon.
Kentucky.

The USS Kentucky is a ballistic nuclear missile submarine and one of the deadliest in the US fleet - she's virtually undetectable and can operate at unimaginable depths.

and the Freeview EPG says it about Chrstobel

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Mighty Ships

The Sky selection menus occasionally get it wrong as well.

Re: Mighty Ships

Well even the Quest web site had it wrong
Any way onto communication
The radio operator failed to make contact with base for a long time on the surface in one scene
The order to fire missiles, they claimed  could be made even when the sub was at 700m deep as well as remote authentification
Huh Embarrassed Undecided Crazy

Re: Mighty Ships

Yup!.... I got them to repeat it , ...... just for you Pierre... cos you didn`t believe me first time round..... and also for Petlew,..... who actually missed the prog....
Yes, I noticed that the radio operator could not establish communications for about 30 mins "on the surface"  (which seemed a bit pathetic, considering it was probably satellite comms they were using........... and then they could get the "go" message, when submerged.....
In the days of H.F Submarine Broadcasts..... I think they could receive messages when submerged..... but not sure how deep the could be...
