Another panoramic view … Grangemouth at night has always reminded me of Blade Runner. What do you think?
It’s all lit up! The fleet’s all lit up!
All lit up was a well-known euphemism for a long time, but unfortunately puns about drunken people being illuminated have to be explained nowadays.
When I first heard about that broadcast, I was told the fleet review had taken place in the Forth – which would have made your comment even more appropriate! But alas not, it was the Solent, and the relocation was merely the storyteller’s embellishment.
Did you notice this other youtube rendition, which dispenses with the added music, but adds an animated Lieutenant-Commander Thomas Woodrooffe? ,,, https://youtu.be/N9cZFAoLOeE … and good to see the BBC still features the recording on its website … http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0208j3q
