Heads Up! Showing on Film4 1315 Friday. Ace-base movie.
Go to The Yangtse Incident to read Kerans' Naval Review account of the filming which Soleil lifted for us in 2011. Fascinating (and amusing) reading I thought).
For anyone not up with it Kerans was the officer sent to get HMS Amethyst out of the mess she had got into after being attacked by Red Chinese artillery way up the Yangtse. No betetr choice of 'naval adviser'! Also, the film was shot using the original ship.
