Bbc Coast - Goodwin Sands

To answer the question to all those who have emailed and texted me ref the date for the airing of the infamous episode. I have been told by the BBC that the Goodwin Sands episode is on 14 Dec 06 at 8pm BBC2. I suspect it is unlikley that imagery of the actual incident taking place will be aired as their cameras were a bit beyond use by then, but the RNLI boys did film the rescue from the all-weather boat flybridge and a birdy has told me that they may have been asked to release the footage for broadcast. I don't know the detail other than the time I am afraid.
Sorry to bang on about this but I have had so many emails I figured I could just inform all in a oner.
