Abstract:

"Presented by acclaimed historian and author Colonel Tim Collins of the British Army, this compelling three part series presents a portrait of the dreams, innovations and achievements of the twentieth century as seen through the fates of three history-making ships built at the famous Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Ireland. Utilising an inventory of visual techniques including film projection, digital time-lapse photography and computer imagery, Colonel Collins introduces audiences to rare footage of the Titanic, while explaining the key roles played by the SS Canberra in the Falklands War and the naval strategy behind the greatest sea-based conflicts of two World Wars. This is not just a story about ships, a shipyard or even a city, but of earth-shattering events on a global scale which shaped and re-defined modern history"--Container.
