Episode 1 of 2

Airson 40 bliadhna, bha an QE2 a’ riaghladh na mara mar an t-soitheach as glòrmhor san t-saoghal. Story of the QE2's reign as the world’s most illustrious cruise liner.

For 40 years the QE2 reigned as the world’s most illustrious cruise liner, travelling six million miles, circumnavigating the globe 25 times and carrying over two and a half million passengers.

These programmes tell the story of this feat of maritime engineering - from its beginnings in a Clydeside shipyard, its maiden voyage across the Atlantic, its golden heyday and iconic journeys, brushes with controversy and requisition during the Falklands War.

Charting the QE2’s story with a wealth of archive alongside interviews with former crew, passengers, historians and engineers, this compelling two part series tells the story of how the most luxurious ship in the world became the flagship of Britain.

Airson 40 bliadhna, bha an QE2 a’ riaghladh na mara mar an t-soitheach as glòrmhor san t-saoghal, a’ seòladh sia millean mìle, a’ dol timcheall an t-saoghail 25 uairean agus a’ giùlain dà mhillean gu leth luchd-siubhail.

Tha na prògraman seo ag innse sgeulachd mara iongantach an QE2 - bhon ghàrradh-iarainn air Abhainn Chluaidh far an deach a togail, a’ chiad seòladh aice tarsainn a’ Chuain Siar, na làithean mòra seòlaidh, na làithean connspaideach agus an gairm gu Na h-Eileanan Fàclannach aig àm a’ chogaidh.

Le bhith a’ cleachdadh tasglann agus agallamhan bhon chriutha, luchd-siubhail, eachdraichean agus innleadairean, tha an dà phrògram seo ag innse sgeulachd an t-soithich mhìorbhaileach seo a bha mar shuaicheantas-mara ann am Breatainn.
