The COVID Cruise - tonight on TV


Recommended Posts

Didn’t see another thread about it. 

 

Tonight on The Nature Of Things on CBC at 9pm EDT is Mike Downie’s documentary about the Diamond Princess. 
 

For those of you who know the reference, Mike is Gord’s brother.

I just tried to watch it on your link, but I got an error message that the 'GEM Experience is not available outside of Canada."  Shame, I was very interested in seeing it.  🙁

That's where even a free VPN would come in handy. Just tell your computer you are in Canada and it works fine. 😁

 

(The VPN I use isn't free but there are many out there that are free.)

Watched it this afternoon.  Seems the Diamond was under Japanese government control after it docked in Yokohama.  My view is that the Japan administration bears a lot of the responsibility for the debacle mitigated somewhat by the general lack of knowledge surrounding the virus at the time.  Princess apparently employed their std response to a spread of norovirus but that response was not effective against the coronavirus.

Where we live in the USA, Comcast only has one episode from this season and it is not this one. They have episode 2.

 

Do you know which episode it is?

I was able to watch it using a VPN connected to a Canadian server. Very interesting, and seemingly quite Canadian in not blaming someone or screaming or whatever. Well presented.

Interesting documentary, but I thought it was funny that most of the clips supposedly showing life on board the ship weren't on the Diamond Princess or any Princess ship for that matter.  Lots of clips showing the Oasis Class RCCL ships, etc.
