Pont L'Abbe's claim to fame!

While we are on the subject of Brittany Ferries, while reading about Pont L'Abbe today I found that she was featured in BBC motoring program, Top Gear. She is in shot for literally half a second but that has got to be her claim to fame! Picture above shows James May and Richard Hammond boarding their boat with what was then known as Duke of Scandinavia in the background. Lovely to see! Apparently she was also featured in "Birds of a Feather"

Actually, you'll find the Pont l'abbe is much more famous than that.
She took a starring role in the BBC soap opera 'TRIANGLE' in the late 80s - which was set on a North Sea Ferry. She was used for both the interior and the exterior shots of the short running soap.
