A tribute to Cunard's QE2 Following 39 years of continuous service and a recent uncertain history during lay-up in Dubai, we delve into the history of Cunard's most famous liner. Interviews with Commodore Ron Warwick and the team from 'QE2 London' hoping to bring the liner back to the UK.
Our 60-minute programme is a tribute to this wonderful ship which became part of life for so many crew and passengers alike. The liner was a familiar part of Southampton's port as she docked on a regular basis to disembark passengers before embarking more in the afternoon for the next voyage.
We look at the ship as she docks and begins the process of re-loading stores and passengers. We go on board after her major refit in the early 2000s and discover the emotional splendours as the vessel departs from Southampton on her final normal departure for New York. We witness the great, but sad, occasion of QE2's last day in Southampton and all the tributes paid during the day.
We finish with a look at Cunard's new liners, especially Queen Mary 2 on her inauguration day in 2004. See the interiors and the wonderful send off in the evening on her maiden voyage. A famous gathering of QE2, Queen Mary 2 and Queen Victoria in Southampton during 2008 ends our special programme.

‘RMS QUEEN MARY’
A new souvenir guide book written by Roger Hardingham about the world’s most famous liner.
Since her launch in 1934, the Queen Mary quickly became a favourite ship and a special place in the hearts of passengers and crew. Sailing across the Atlantic for 1001 crossings, the liner was in service for 31 years before retirement by the Cunard Line in 1967. Fortunately, the Queen Mary was saved from scrap and bought by the City of Long Beach in California as a hotel, attraction with a series of restaurants.
This new publication outlines the historical relevance of this great liner with dozens of colour and black & white images, with chapters on her launching, war service, art on board, life at sea and the vast number of stately rooms still available to view by the visitor today.
