on Monday. These are also available commercially on DVD (or VHS
tape) check Amazon or eBay etc.

commercially yet and I don't know if they ever will be, which is a
shame as there are so many good story lines as the saga unfolds in
the later episodes. The whole series was repeated on UK Gold about
1993-94 so there is a chance they will appear again one day. Members
of this list keep mailing the cable channel UK Drama asking for more
of the series to be shown (at least I hope they do) so who knows
maybe we'll get another series or two out of them.

Many thanks for the information.I have series 1 2 and 3 now,

Quite an ineresting site you have there Bill plenty of information.
My great grandfather was captain on the sailing ships during the
nineteenth century so i find the series very interesting. Myself i
was mate on trawlers out of Grimsby until fishing finished i then
worked on oil rig support ships. Now just recently retired.
