    :Smile:Did anyone see this on BBC2 last night, showed the building and launch of Astra 2F, which I believe replaces the 2B< cluster , absolutly brilliant prog. Now I know what it looks like when I am cursing, trying to find the sodding thing :BigGrin:

    All three have been brilliant. And all three point to British success in manufacturing. Very dependent on Europe so a bit scary.

    The other great one on TV at the moment is Wednesday, Your Money and how they spend it.

    Before people get confused and asking about new satellites etc...
    It showed the manufacturing of 2e and 2f.
    It showed the launch of 1n.
    2f is not schedule for launch for a year or so.

    Fame by association... Our friend has been building those satellites and travelling to all the places they showed in the documentary. Whilst their he has either been spending his spare time deep sea diving or for a change sky diving. As well as watching the odd satellite being launched! :BigGrin: Jane :Smile:
