The BBC are currently planning to show Chris Terrill’s three part documentary series on HMS Queen Elizabeth, which is due to start transmitting on BBC2 at 2000 on Sunday 15th April. The programme, titled “Britain’s Biggest Warship” tracks the ship through build, and then to commissioning as a Royal Navy ship last December. The other two programmes should follow weekly at the same time slot and BBC are going to repeat the series on Saturday afternoons on BBC2 (1500-1600). (Note that the BBC may alter their schedule up to 2 weeks before transmission but current intentions are for the programme to be shown as planned).
