    Default BBC2 8pm - Greatest Raid

    If you havn't seen this before, and you enjoy documentrys on daring feats, then make sure you watch this.

    Its presented by Jeremy Clarkson, (who tells the story with amazing passion) who tells the story of how the british rammed a ship into the dry dock at St Nazaire to stop the Germans from using it for their own gain.

    Its an amazing story from WWII, and one that is not widely known about.

    Following on from that there is another program about Operation Mincemeat, again a little known event of WWII, but had a big effect on the outcome.

    have recorder set. This is one of those feats that proves (if it were ever needed) that our forces are second to none.

    Knew about the St Nazaire raid, been at least one film about it. Not sure I've heard of Operation Mincemeat, unless I know of it by another name.
    Waiting for daughter and grandson, supposed to be taking them to Birmingham hotel ready for their holiday flight to Egypt tomorrow.
    Were supposed to be here by 5.30pm, 7.15pm now, no sign and no response to phone/text messages. Bit worrying when she said she'll use the back roads and forecast is freezing fog and ice.
