BATTLESHIP USS ALABAMA (BB-60):
The keel of the USS ALABAMA (BB-60) was laid at the Norfolk Navy Yard, Portsmouth, Virginia, on 1 February 1940, the sixth vessel to bear the name of ALABAMA. At the outbreak of hostilities, her hull construction was nearing completion. Some two years later (16 February 1942), the new South Dakota Class battleship was launched in a colorful ceremony attended by many national figures. Sponsoring the vessel was Mrs. Lister Hill, wife of Alabama's Senator Hill. On 16 August 1942, in ceremonies at Portsmouth, Virginia, the new ship was placed in full commission and Captain George B. Wilson, USN, assumed command. The name ALABAMA was first assigned to the 74-gun ship-of-the-line, whose keel was laid in June 1819, at Portsmouth Navy Yard. Work proceeded slowly until the outbreak of the Civil War when Almost Alabama was renamed the NEW HAMPSHIRE.
The first ALABAMA, a 56-ton Revenue Cutter built at New York and acquired on 22 June 1819 at a cost of $ 4,500, was active in the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico in the 1820s. She was responsible for the capture of more than one dozen pirate vessels and slave traders, and sold in 1833...
USS DRUM (SS-228):
The DRUM refers to any of various fishes capable of making a drumming noise; best known and named for a large sea bass off the North Atlantic Coast. The USS DRUM (SS-228) Submarine was launched May 12, 1941, by Portsmouth Navy Yard, New Hampshire, and sponsored by Mrs. Thomas Holcomb. She was commissioned November 1, 1941, with CDR R. H. Rice in command.
DRUM arrived at Pearl Harbor from the east coast April 1, 1942, and after a voyage to Midway, she cleared Pearl Harbor on April 14, 1942, action bound on her first war patrol. Cruising off the coast of Japan, she sank the seaplane Tender MIZUHO and three cargo ships in the month of May, returning to Pearl Harbor on June 12th to refit. DRUM's second war patrol, which she made in the waters between Truk and Kavieng from July 10th to September 2nd, found her efforts frustrated by poor torpedo performance, but she damaged one freighter before returning to Midway to refit...

Globe Trekker Series 6 - Deep South USA Trailer
Interested in more information? Follow this link to find out everything you need to know!
Ian Wright journeys through America’s ‘Bible Belt’ – the Deep South, home to the civil rights movement, the American civil war, and blues, jazz and rock.
His trip begins with a trek in the stunning Smoky Mountains on the Tennessee / North Carolina border. It’s the most visited National Park in the country but there’s still incredible remote wilderness and breathtaking vistas all the way to the top of Mount Le Cont.
Driving south, Ian’s first stop in North Carolina is Asheville. The town is best known for its home-grown entertainment and the lively mountain music festival in the summer. Back on the road he learns a little about the Cherokee Indians who lived in this region until the white man arrived, a whole tribe of Cherokees was to walk to Oklahoma.
In Scottsboro, Alabama, Ian pays a visit the baggage reclaim superstore. Ian discovers there’s thriving business to be made out of bargains and bizarre articles which never find their way back to their owners hands at airports all around the world.
In the conservative, fundamentalist southern states of the ‘Bible Belt’ it is thought that the snake is the embodiment of the devil. Ian meets Reverend Carl Porter uses deadly snakes during his sermons, believing that if you can master a snake you can master the power of the devil. Not surprisingly, his five hour services have had a few casualties!
Ian begins his day in Atlanta, gateway to the Deep South, with the ultimate southern breakfast of country fried steak and grits & gravy. Atlanta is the place where the world famous drink Coca-Cola was invented.
The birthplace of Martin Luther King Jr, Atlanta’s most famous son, is situated at the end of ‘Freedom Walk’. The house is now a national monument. When he was shot dead in Memphis in 1968 his body was returned home and every year thousands of pilgrims inspired by dreams of interracial harmony pay their respects.
From Atlanta Ian takes a greyhound bus to Tuskegee, Alabama, for the public reunion of America’s first back fighter pilots, an annual air-show at Moton field. He’s lucky enough to be offered a ride in an early training plane and learns a few tactical (but stomach-churning) manoeuvres.
After heading south to the idyllic Gulf Shores, Ian spends a day witnessing a reconstruction of the last battle of the American Civil war. In 1865 the Confederates of the South finally surrendered to the Unionists of the North in Mobile Bay at Fort Morgan.
That evening he joins the Florabama beach party where he learns the right way to eat crawfish – and the right way to toss mullet in the interstate mullet-toss between Alabama & Florida.
The last leg of Ian’s journey takes him via Vicksburg and the blues town of Clarksdale to Memphis, Tennessee. In Clarksdale he rents a room in the Riverside Hotel, once patronised by the likes of Sam Cook and Muddy Waters, and pays a visit to Wade Walten, the blues-singling barber at the only old style shave joint left in town.
Ian finally arrives at his destination - Memphis, the city which flourished on the cotton trade of the Mississippi Delta. He’s here for just one thing, though – Elvis week, an annual pilgrimage for thousands of fans in the week of the anniversary of the King’s death on August 16th.
On a Cadillac cab to tour he takes in the sights of the town: Elvis’ childhood home, his school and Sun Studios, where Elvis recorded his first ever hit. The highpoint of the week, and the end of Ian’s trip through the extraordinary southern states is a candlelit vigil attended by thousands, lasting throughout the night of August 16th.
