http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5049729/Tank-banned-Remembrance-Parade-health-safety.html Apart from the HS idiocy I would be intrested to see how the tank was built and what plans they had to build. Any one know when this program will be aired.

It might be worth bearing in mind that the Mail in particular, and the Telegraph to some extent. sometimes carry stories that are, to use the technical expression, "not true", especially when they scent an opportunity to disparage health and safety legislation.

Not just by the Daily Mail and Telegraph. http://thelincolnite.co.uk/2017/11/guy-martin-will-not-drive-wwi-tank-through-lincoln/ As I have said apart from the HS hoo harr, I am more intrested in the build of the tank, not sure when or if the documentary is to be shown. I am up for watching that. It would be also interesting to compare the build of the War Horse tank a couple of years ago.

I'm not sure exactly what's going on here, but it sounds as if they're going to build a full size working replica, which seems both ambitious and very expensive. If they're intending to commemorate Cambrai, they've got a fortnight to build it and do the filming. If they were hoping to have a presence on Remembrance Day, they've got a week. Where does the "four months" come from?
