'Freeview' (digital terrestrial TV in the UK) is currently rerunning an old BBC TV series on Saturdays called 'The Onedin Line'. It originally went out in the 1970s, but was set in Liverpool in the late 1800s. It was about a shipping trade line. I'd quite forgotten that one of the characters, one Daniel Fogarty, was played by none other than our very own Michael Billington. Haven't seen him climb the rigging yet though!
