Yes I heard it as 30 years too. Maybe my hearing is going as well  ;)

From a historical point of view they were presenting things as new that have been known for a long time. The quest to find a living descendant of one of the two named people on the Mary Rose seemed a waste of time and added nothing as far as I could see. Just hope their ethnicity DNA testing was more reliable and fact based than Ancestry's ( a bit of wishful thinking there methinks!)

The one thing I took away from it was the Museum looked good and i wouldn't mind visiting if i was in the area.

On a trip to Portsmouth during holiday 2 years ago, we spent a lovely day viewing the 3 ships.
Looking forward to viewing the recorded programme.

I visited in the early days, when the ship was in a temporary structure. Despite the small amount of exhibition space, it was a fantastic place to visit.

The really impressive sight is, of course, the ship. Having seen it only through the window of the TV screen, the sheer size of it surprised me. It is HUGE.
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.
