In the UK: Five, Mondays, 9pm
Last week, I looked at Making Waves, a now-cancelled ITV drama series designed, in part, to educate the great British public about the Royal Navy and its vital role in the world. It’s now grown on me so much that I’ve gone to the ridiculous lengths of VideoBoxing it, stapling all the individual parts together with QuickTime Pro, fixing the aspect ratios, then exporting it to my iPod so I can watch it on the go.
But by bizarre freaky coincidence, there’s a new series on Five – which is why I overlooked it – that is almost the exact same show but done as a documentary.
Let’s compare and contrast, so we can decide which one we’d rather watch.
