World's Greatest Warships


This three part documentary series charts the history of the warship from the dawn of the twentieth century to the present day and in doing so tells the story of the most iconic ships of all time. From HMS Dreadnought to USS Enterprise, from Tirpitz to Ark Royal these are ships that took part in some of the greatest naval battles in history. In each episode, we focus on one important class of warship; from the great leviathans of the Second World War to WW1’s Dreadnoughts, ending with the aircraft carrier. The series features expert interviews, original filming aboard existing ships, stunning archive footage, exclusive access to original ships plans and computer-generated animations of long-lost ships.
