Very interesting program - quite an insight into Alan's trip a couple of years back

Hi folks

Good program but almost impossible I felt, to fit it all in 30 minutes.

If people havnt read Clives book, do so.

The TV program gives you the idea but I dont think it gives the real feeling like the book did.
If you liked the program I think you will love the book.

Either way book or TV still a wonderful achievement.

Regards Gary

Gary's absolutely right - Those that haven't read Clive Tullys 'Confronting Poseidon' should.

It's available from:

Offshore Publishing
Suite 11
Portsmouth Enterprise Centre
Quartremaine Road
Portsmouth
PO3 5QT

20squid i think.

I'll try and find a tel. No. and let you know.

Although the half hour prog was good, it only really scratches the surface of what those guys went through. Get the book and see for yourself - impossible to put down!!
