Hi Elaine and everyone else,

I have just had a look at the Exetermemories site, its brilliant, I always
find these behind the scene things fascinating.

It is a wee bit hard to believe some times that all this happened so long
ago and some of thouse wonderful people are no longer with us any more.

The picture of Howard Lang I found especially touching, its easy to believe
he's some where now still propping up the side of a ship with that grin on
his face.

Well thanks again Elaine for the link, you never know maybe down the line
more of these sorts of pictures will pop up.

Have a great day all.

Good morning "shipmates" …

Just found some more sites which have a tiny bit more on the Onedin
Line …

http://www.thechest <> – promises much but
delivers little 🙁

http://www.exeterme <> – great pix and
some background info on the series.

<> –
covers many movies/TV series and for the ship-buffs among us could be
a source of great interest.

Not sure if this is true but I read recently that the Charlotte
Rhodes was destroyed by fire in 1980-something … does anyone have
any definite information?

Also read that Howard Lang died in 1989.

And I've been having a real wander about the internet to see if there
are any more DVDs/Videos past Series 4 and have come up with a great
big blank.

And I did a fairly comprehensive search of surname databases and came
up with another blank. I really cannot find any entries there or in
telephone books for Onedin. Looks like it is not a surname with a
family attached. Given all the variations among surnames, it seems
amazing that someone thought up one which is unique. Does any lista
know anything definite on the surname Onedin?

Drat that we've finished watching all 4 series and wonder if we'll
live long enough to see series 5 to 8 given the great amount of time
taken to get even these out.

Have a great week 🙂
