The last of three programmes
On one dull winter's day in 1940 the Queen Elizabeth slipped away from the Clyde to join her sister ship Queen Mary in New York and for the next five years the liners had a less glamorous but vitally important role to play. The Normandie was tragically lost by fire in New York and with peace the Queens ruled the Atlantic. But the lengthening shadows cast by transatlantic aircraft finally brought an end to an era.
Robert Wall concludes the story of the liners.

Survival of the Fastest
Mallory Park , Isle of Man, two-stroke, four-stroke, Honda, Suzuki, Motoguzzi, Ducati, BMW, BSA, Barry Sheene , Hailwood, Haslam, Harley-Davidson, Vincent, Velocette, the Brighton run ... in the hearts of all aficionados these are names that conjure the magic of the motorcycle.
This is the story of the evolution of a primitive machine-two wheels and an engine-into a gleaming, glamorous, sophisticated piece of engineering. And the driving force was speed - the winning machines sold. That was how the Japanese industry conquered the motorcycle world - but can the Europeans make a comeback? Narrator TONY BRITTON
