    Hi to all,
    I just became a member a few weeks ago. Have been a fan of the Onedin
    TV series since it showed on german TV, think in the 70's. Was thrilled
    when I purchased my first tapes and DVDs and could listen to all of the
    original voices and dialogs a few days ago. Funny but James's sister
    Elizabeth is named Isabelle in the german TV episodes and books!??
    Can anybody tell me if there are any further books after the "Iron
    Ships"? Also can anyone recommend the following books: Cyril Abraham's
    The Onedin Line : Turning Tide by Bruce Stewart, World of the " Onedin
    Line" by Alison McLeay or "Your complete guide to the continuing story
    of BBC1's " the Onedin Line" and to the real life saga of the sea in
    James Onedin's 1870s ( Radio Times' special. What are they about? I
    ordered most of the Series 1-4, ( on tapes or DVDs ) can you also
    obtain further episodes?
    So lots of questions. To me, I was born in Plymouth, MA, USA live in
    Germany since 1968 and am married with 2 children. Also a member of
    bookcrossing.com.Thanks you for any answers.

    Hi Barbara,

     

    Welcome to the group. I’ll try to
    answer all your questions.

     

    Don’t really know why
    Elizabeth is called Isabel
    and Albert is Elmer in the German synchronization but likely the names are easier
    to pronounce.

     

    The books re. The Onedin line (I recommend
    them all):

     

    The Shipmaster

    The Iron Ships

    The High Seas

    The Trade Winds

    The White Ships

    The Turning Tide

     

    The book “The World Of The Onedin
    Line” is a must have for an Onedin fan. The first section is about the
    Onedin family, the second section reviews the reality behind the series; a good
    historical review about real life in the 19th century about life on
    the sailing ships and the last section is about the making of the series, how
    they managed to film at sea and also what went wrong.

     

    The Radio Times Special also gives inside
    information and an overview about series 3.

     

    At the moment only series 1 to 4 are
    released on DVD. It’s likely that other 4 series will be released but don’t
    know when.

     

    Kind regards,

    Marianne

    Welcome to our group.
     
    I think Elizabeth is simply the English version of
    Isabelle which is the same for a number of European languages including Spanish
    if I remember correctly. The different spelling and pronunciation may well have
    started about the time of our own good Queen Bess (Elizabeth the
    First) in England, although I'm sure a search in Google would tell all the
    facts.
     
    I'm sure someone on here will know about the books,
    and again Google my be your friend for some information.
     
    Up to and including series 4 is available
    commercially, I know of no plans for series 5 onwards to be released
    yet.
     
    Bill.

    'Elisabeth' and 'Albert' are well known and useable in Germany too,
    but this names was a little vintage and out in the 70's.
    'Isabel' and 'Elmer' sounds more modern and it's possible, this was the
    cause of renaming. Could be, the renaming was an idea of the synchron
    studio team. By the way, the German voices of the Onedin characters
    are very well known and popular actors and synchron speakers. James'
    voice is Christian Br├╝ckner, the standard voice of Robert deNiro and
    Elmer's voice is the same like Tom Selleck's in 'Magnum'.
