Lanfranc BS: The Sinking of the Lusitania (21) RE: BS: The Sinking of the Lusitania 27 May 07

An interesting and well acted depiction of the events - especially the scenes inside the U-boat.

Perhaps now someone will have the courage to accord the same sort of coverage to the sinking of the Lancastria off St Nazaire in 1940, where the loss of life was many times more than the Lusitania and the Titanic combined. News of that sinking was suppressed by a D-notice and has been pushed under the political carpet by successive governments ever since.

Oh, and yes, that was at the insistence of Churchill, too!
