    Does anyone have an off-air copy of the BBC documentary "'A British Legend, The Search for Bluebird"?
    It was shown in 2001 and followed the team who recovered the famous boat from Coniston.

    Thanks,

    Mark.

    Good luck

    The Lakeland motor museum in the Lake district may be worth a try also, there's a separate exhibition with replicas of three of Donald's vehicles, and continuous film and TV being shown, it's well worth a visit

    Mark,
    I've been to the Lakeland Museum and it's superb. As well as the Bluebird replicas it has many vintage cars, including a Delorean a l� "Back To The Future", classic motorikes, early caravans and iconic bric a brac like the petrol pumps emblazoned with elegantly rendered Esso and Shell name plates from years back.
    Highly recommended.

    It most certainly is a superb museum Edward, I loved it there, I love those old enamel advertisements, plenty for motorbike fans also, there's a few snaps on the link, I don't know why I've never visited the lake district before, it's absolutely beautiful..........

    I remember the comment I made when I saw the news item as a nine-year-old. "Campbell's in the soup!" I said, pleased with my little pun. "THAT'S not very nice!" said my dad, who was also watching. He still laughed, though. Years later, he would still remind me of my macabre pun. Being more than old enough to understand what loss means, I no longer joke about death. R.I.P., Donald.
