Presented by Colonel Tim Collins
From Baird Maritime:
This offers a well presented if rather British-centric view of the great ships of the twentieth century.
Focussing on the once great old shipyard of Harland and Wolff in Belfast and some of the famous ships it built, such as ‘RMS Titanic’, ‘HMS Glorious’ and ‘SS Canberra’, it used some modern cinema graphic techniques to make its point.
A useful, well-presented but very jingoistic history. Rather too parochial for this reviewer’s tastes.
