    Default Lusitania

    ITíS the heartbreaking story of a Liverpool- based liner which has been told many times before.

    Yet the true scale of the terrible tragedy which befell the Lusitania still doesnít seem to have been fully appreciated.

    This might all change tomorrow night.

    For millions of viewers are expected to watch BBC1ís 90-minute drama Lusitania: Murder On The Atlantic, narrated by and starring John Hannah, who plays a survivor, Professor Holborn, and also featuring Kenneth Cranham, who takes the role of the shipís Liverpool-born captain, William Turner.

    The passenger ship was crossing the Atlantic on May 7, 1915, with 1,959 people on baord.

    enjoyed most of it but the people stuck in the lift with not an ounce of anguish on their faces took away the moment for me.

    Bloody governments again sacrificing people for politics, it really has been war games throughout history. One of these days the people will twig on to governments.

    Good acting from the mainstream cast.

    I didn't know this until recently, but the very little used St James' Church in West Derby has a unique war memorial depicting the doomed Cunard liner Lusitania.

    When I am next there, I'll get a picture.
