The launching or, more accurately, the "floating out" took place on 19 July 1843. Conditions were generally favourable but diarists recorded that, after a dull start, the weather brightened later on with only a few intermittent showers. The atmosphere of the day can best be gauged from a report published the following day in The Bristol Mirror. The reporter recorded that:
Large crowds started to gather early in the day including many people who had travelled to Bristol to see the spectacle. There was a general atmosphere of anticipation as the Royal Emblem was unfurled. The processional route had been cleaned and Temple Street decorated with flags, banners, flowers and ribbons. Boys of the City School and girls of Red Maids were stationed in a neat orderly formation down the entire length of the Exchange. The route was a mass of colour and everybody was out on the streets as it was a public holiday. The atmosphere of gaiety even allowed thoughts to drift away from the problems of political dissension in London
Prince Albert arrived at 10am at the Great Western Railway Terminus. The royal train, conducted by Brunel himself, had taken two hours and forty minutes from London
. There was a guard of honour, consisting of members of the police force, soldiers and dragoons and, as the Prince stepped from the train, the band of the Life Guards played works by Labitsky and a selection from the "Ballet of Alma". Two sections of the terminus platform were boarded off for the reception and it was noted by The Bristol Mirror that parts were covered with carpets from the Council House. The Prince Consort, dressed as a private gentleman, was accompanied by his equerry-in-waiting, personal secretary, the Marquis of Exeter, and Lords Warncliffe, Liverpool, Lincoln and Wellesley
Introductions were made, followed by the "Address to His Royal Highness the Prince Albert", by the town clerk, D.Burgess. Honours were then bestowed on him by the Society of Merchant Venturers, and there were speeches from members of the Bristol clergy. The royal party then had breakfast and, after twenty minutes, reappeared to board horse-drawn carriages.
At noon, the Prince arrived at the Great Western Steamship yard only to find the ship already "launched" and waiting for the royal inspection. Prince Albert boarded the ship, took refreshments in the elegantly decorated lounge and then commenced his tour of inspection. He was then received in the ship's banqueting room where all the local dignitaries and their ladies were gathered.
After the banquet and the toasts, His Royal Highness left for the naming ceremony. It had already been decided that the actual christening would be performed by Mrs Clarissa Miles (1790–1868), wife of Philip John Miles (1773–1845) and mother of Bristol's MP, Philip William Skinner Miles (1816–1881), a Director of the Company. When the appropriate time came, she stepped forward, grasped the champagne bottle and swung it towards the bows. Unfortunately the steam packet Avon had started to tow the ship into the harbour and the bottle fell about 10 feet (3.0 m) short of its target and dropped unbroken into the water. A second bottle was rapidly obtained and the Prince himself hurled this against the iron hull of Great Britain. In her haste, Avon had also started her work before the shore warps had been released. The tow rope snapped and, due to the resultant delay, the Prince was obliged to return to the railway station and miss the end of the programme.
Following the launch ceremony, the builders had planned to have Great Britain towed to the Thames for her final fitting out. Unfortunately, the Harbour authorities, with responsibility for widening the dock, had failed to carry out the necessary modifications to their facilities in a timely manner. Exacerbating the problem was the fact that the ship itself had been widened beyond the original plans to accommodate the propeller engines, and also that her designers had made a belated decision to fit the engines prior to launch, which resulted in the vessel having a deeper than originally planned initial draught.
This dilemma was to result in another costly delay for the company, as Brunel's negotiations with the Bristol Dock Board dragged on for months. It was only through the intervention of the Board of Trade that the Harbour authorities finally agreed to the lock modifications, which were begun in autumn 1844.
After being trapped in the harbour for more than a year, Great Britain was at last floated out in December 1844, but not before causing more anxiety for her proprietors. After passing successfully through the first set of lock gates, she jammed on her passage through the second which led to the River Avon. Only the seamanship of Captain Claxton enabled her to be pulled back and severe structural damage avoided. The following night, an army of workmen under the direct supervision of Brunel, taking advantage of the

You undoubtedly recognize TIFF as the acronym for the Toronto International Film Festival, but if you're not acquainted with TPFF, then this is your opportunity! The Toronto Palestinian Film Festival is about to begin! Running from October 2nd until the 8th, it features 22 films showcasing Palestinian identity and politics at the Bloor, AGO and Innis theatres. And if food for thought isn't enough to sustain you, then on Sunday, October 3rd at 11:00 am, TPFF is hosting a Traditional Palestinian Breakfast- Sahtain!, catered by renowned Palestinian chef and owner of 93 Harbord, Isam Kaisi.
On September 16, 2010, TPFF kicked off with a pre-festival panel discussion, where two well-known Irish directors discussed their recent collaborative work and the challenges they faced making a political film in the Middle East. Irish director Ken Loach and director/ author Paul Laverty took time out from TIFF 2010, where they were premiering their newest film, "Route Irish," and Laverty's film, "Even The Rain," to participate in the TPFF hosted event moderated by Festival Coordinator, Rafeef Ziadah. Both directors had pulled their films from TIFF in 2009, in response to a boycott call from the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) over Tiff’s controversial "spotlight on Tel Aviv" segment. The conversation with Loach and Laverty touched upon the Palestinian solidarity movement, the making of “Route Irish”, their experiences with boycott and censorship, and what it means to be "balanced". Ken Loach and Paul Laverty were also interviewed by Michael Moore during TIFF 2010 on Politics and Cinema, as part of their Mavericks programme. Ken Loach is known for his hard hitting, evocative and highly political filmmaking. His historic IRA drama, “The Wind That Shakes the Barley”, won the Palme d’Or at Cannes in 2006. "Route Irish” is the name given by coalition forces to a dangerous stretch of highway between Baghdad’s airport and the "Green Zone". The film is about "security contractors" (whom one might also label “foreign mercenaries”) working in Iraq, and is set primarily in Liverpool. It tells the story of Fergus (Mark Womack), a former British soldier who works in this capacity in Iraq. After his childhood friend, Frankie, is killed in a roadside attack along "Route Irish", Fergus rejects the official explanation of his friend's death and seeks to uncover the truth. This latest work confronts the human toll of the Iraq war, local as well as occupiers. It also addresses the disturbing unofficial policy of replacing the coalition forces with privatized soldiers, who are more costly to taxpayers and less accountable to law than enlisted ranks.
On October 3d, TPFF hosts another panel discussion on, "The State of Contemporary Palestinian Cinema," with director Michel Khleifi and Palestinian-Canadian producer Christina Piovesan (“Amreeka”,“The Whistleblower”), They will discuss their experiences making films on Palestine and filming in Palestine, the role of film to tell the Palestinian narrative and share their thoughts on the future direction of Palestinian cinema. It takes place at 3:00pm at Beit Zatoun.
"The Time That Remains," by director Elia Sulieman, opens the festival on Saturday, October 2nd at 6:30 pm. Michel Khleifi will be attending the TPFF Canadian Premiere of his most recent feature film “Zindeeq”, which won Best Film at the Dubai International Film Festival (2009) He is widely considered to be one of the founders of contemporary Palestinian cinema. A writer, director and producer, Khleifi left Nazareth for Belgium in 1970. His awards include the International Critics' Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and the Golden Shell at San Sebastian International Film Festival in 1987. “Zindeeq” will be screened on October 5th at 7:00pm at Jackman Hall, AGO, followed by a Q & A with the director. Among the 22 films to be shown is "Budrus" by director Julia Bacha, which screened at Hot Docs 2010 and was recently reviewed by Linda Dawn Hammond in Magic Carpet. If you missed it then, you can catch it now. A highly recommended film which also appeared at Hot Docs 2010, is Swiss director Nicolas Wadimoff’s, “AISHEEN (Still Alive in Gaza)”, a beautiful and thought provoking documentary about Gaza following Israel’s January 2009 offensive, whose imagery and narrative borders on the surreal. The film is propelled by the compelling music provided by a local rap group, DARG Team. As if restrictions from Israel aren’t enough, there is home grown intolerance to contend with. In one scene, a radio interview is cut short as a religious program follows too closely after, and religious music must be “buffered” from a p
