Golden Maritime Memories (Part 2)
Once again we bring you more previously unseen film, starting with rare footage of the old Queen Elizabeth battling her way through an Atlantic storm in the 1950s, plus fantastic film of her entering New York…. This is followed by film of a voyage to Cape Town aboard Union-Castle’s Durban Castle. Once in South Africa, we sail around the coast on the Durban Castle and on the way see many more Union-Castle ships that have never been captured on film before. Then we take you on a 1960s cruise from Southampton to the Caribbean aboard the magnificent Orsova and to end with we show you what is perhaps the oldest maritime film ever made. Filmed way back in 1899 and shows you the christening of the Royal Yacht, the Victoria and Albert, in Pembroke Dock… Amazing.
