Medway’s Great War relic on TV

U-boat in 1930Trevor Peen writes, “Probably back in November of 2012 Medway Watersports took a film crew down to the U-boat to make a short documentary. There have been two small articles in the local press. I’m sure many members would be intrested in the history on our doorstep.”

Britain’s Great War, presented by Jeremy Paxman, has now been confirmed for Monday January 27th at 9pm on BBC ONE. The episode in which the sunken U-boat is featured is episode 3, to be broadcast on Monday February 10th at 9pm on BBC ONE
