The Great Liners Part  1: P&O & Orient


The Great Liners Part 1: P&O & Orient

Ref: SB1001D


From the archives of the two great shipping lines - The Peninsular & Oriental Steam navigation Co. and the Orient Line - comes this unique record of eight great liners.

For a generation after World War II, before air travel became standard, these giants brought Continents together. Nostalgic ships' names - Chusan, Himalaya, Orcades, Oronsay, Arcadia, Oriana, Orsova and finally Canberra - are seen at sea and in port, above and below decks.

This is a treasury for those who served and sailed on the Great Liners.

The Great Liners Part 6: East of Suez - The British India Line

Ref: SB1006D


The 6th volume in this widely acclaimed series brings to you the story of one of Britain?s greatest maritime names. British India, one of the largest shipping Company?s in the British Merchant Navy, had over 400 ships serve with it during it?s 109-year lifetime.

Their enormous network of passenger and cargo ships served even the smallest ports east of Suez. Shunning the spotlight so much sought after by the glamourous Atlantic liners, the Company provided special service aboard such classic ships as the Malda, Dunera, Rajula, Chantala, Waroonga, Nevasa, Kenya and Uganda.

Ref: SB1010D


In this the 10th episode of this highly acclaimed series we see the training schools and follow the cadets and ratings as they join their first ship and embark on voyages of true adventure. That first ship could easily have been a tramp steamer or a luxury transatlantic liner.

Two of the most popular companies in the British Mechant Navy were Port Line and Ben Line both were at the fore in having distinctively styled ships with streamlined profiles.

The Great Liners Part 11: The Great Port of London


The Great Liners Part 11: The Great Port of London

Ref: SB1011D


There was a time when a seagull could have flown for eleven miles up river & never left London's docklands. In this remarkable video, with the use of very rare archive film, producer Des Cox takes us back to those most memorable days when as many as 60,000 ships used the port every year and thousands of people were employed to tend them. 1,500 turning cranes swung the many different cargoes to and from the many quays. where the ships lay at rest, their floodlit funnels reaching beckoningly through the heavy darkness of a cold winter's morn.

There were Blue Stars - Federals - Union Castle Rangi boats - Blue Flues - Port Boats - BI - Glen Line - Ben Line - P & O - Cunard - Shaw Savill - Royal Mail - Ellerman Lines - Furness Withy - Harrisons and many more, all lined up as far as the eye can see. A heavy fusion of malty cargo and industrial smells, so uniquely characteristic of that London Dockland scene, lay thickly on the air of that very special world, an almost secret world, a world that, once, it seemed could never end.

This video brings it all back in graphic reality and serves as a lasting historical document and tribute to all those people and ships that once made the Port of London, the greatest seaport in the world.

The Great Liners Part 12: From Broadway to Bermuda


The Great Liners Part 12: From Broadway to Bermuda

Ref: SB1012D


Part 12 gives an insight into the Furness Withy Group, once one of the largest shipping organizations in the world. Starting from very modest beginnings in Hartlepool in the late 1980s, Furness Withy grew to become one of the most successful Shipping Organizations in the world, operating over 1500 ships in their time.

This expertly produced video, using very rare archive film, takes vou to sea aboard some of the cargoes ships that once flew the Furness colours with pride. Pacific and Prince Line ships as well as a voyage aboard the "Newfoundland" which includes some of the best storm scenes ever on tilm, as it battles its way across the North Atlantic in a mid-winter hell.

The second half of the video takes us right back to the 1920s to the Furness Bermuda Line, and the ships they operated from New York to Bermuda on what was once the most successful passenger liner route of all time. The marvelous old archive film, much of which the producers restored literally frame by frame, takes us right back to the founding of this service and on voyages aboard such famous liners as the "Bermuda" ~ "Monarch of Bermuda" ~ "Queen of Bermuda" and the "Ocean Monarch".

We also get a short glimpse of the "Monarch of Bermuda" in her later life when she served onthe Australian emigrant trade as Shaw Savills "New Australia" Regardless of your nautical background, this video is a must, showing you a life at sea which has now long gone and sadly, will never return again. - Tremendous.

The Great Liners Part 13: The Queen Mary


The Great Liners Part 13: The Queen Mary

Ref: SB113D


Producer/writer Des Cox has searched the world for over ten years to find the rare archive film necessary to make this most brilliant production.

Now, using only moving film, most of which has never been made available to the public before, you can now step back in time to an age when our nation had pride in its achievements, and experience just what it was like to have sailed aboard the world's most famous ocean liner, - Feel the excitement as you arrive in Southampton to join her for her maiden voyage and a little later, on the voyage she captured the prized Blue Riband for Cunard White Star and for a whole rejoicing nation.

You will share the joy and pride of those most momentous of maritime occasionsas if you were actually there in person, and see the ship as never been seen on video before: The bridge - decks - public rooms - restaurants - cabins - even crew working areas never seen before such as her secluded yet productive print- shop and her massive, cavernous engine rooms.

Sadly, there will never be another great ocean liner quite like the "Queen Mary" and there will never be another video made about her to equal the content and quality of this one. This video doesn't contain any still pictures - footage of her in California today - or unnecessary interviews, only sensational, rare archive film, all shot professionally on 1 6mm film during her undisputed heyday as the Queen of the North Atlantic.

Produced to British Broadcast Standards it has a running time of approximately 59 mins and is widely accepted as being the only video ever made to do justice to the glorious "Queen Mary".

The Great Liners Part 14: Tankers


The Great Liners Part 14: Tankers

Ref: SB1014D


Not the most romantic of titles but this video is truly superb. Using extremely rare archive film it takes you right back to 1861 when the story of sea-going tankers first began. Using only moving images the video tells the story of the Tanker and how it evolved from frail sailing ships to the giants of today. It shows some of the very earliest motorised tankers berthing and sailing from the Persian Gulf during the early part of the last century and in wartime service. We then join the crews aboard four tankers operated by Shell, BP and Esso during the 1940s/70s and sail with them, often through mountainous storms on their voyages around the world.

The crews of these ships had little idea when they would return home again, often receiving fresh sailing instructions while at sea. One ship we join has already been away when it receives the great news that she's to sail for the UK and home. The video takes you above and below decks, allowing you to experience just what it was like to have gone to sea on those ships from the small vessels that first pioneered the tanker revolution at the turn of the last century, through to the ocean-going leviathans of today.

The Great Liners: Episode 40 - Shipping on the Tyne


The Great Liners: Episode 40 - Shipping on the Tyne

Ref: SB1040D


For our 40th episode in this epic, award winning series, we have come up with something quite special. To start with it has a running time of 75 minutes, that?s absolutely packed with some truly rare archive film, most of which has never been made public before.

In this episode we take you to the North East of England to the Tyne, a place that not so many years ago, was home to one of the biggest and busiest maritime stages in the world. Ships filled every berth of the Tyne all the way from its estuary to Newcastle and beyond. It was a scene of constant activity, with ships of every shape and size arriving from and sailing to, ports all over the world.

The rare film we have used allows you to be able to step back in time and experience this, almost as if you were there in person. But the Tyne had so many more maritime wonders to show, for it was also the home of some of the world?s biggest ship building industries that not only built ships for the UK, but also for most of the world as well.

In its day it built and launched over 4,000 ships, including some of the most innovative and famous ships ever to sail the seven seas. In this programme we include the building launch of some of them including the Mauretania and the Dominion Monarch, the magnificent Port Line ships, as well as Ellerman Lines, Shaw Savill and many more? sights we never ever thought we would ever be able to see.

But, this programme also has many surprises for you in the form of great maritime stories that up until now have gone largely untold. They include the remarkable story of the old paddle tug, ?Eppleton Hall?. When she finally retired after over half a century of dedicated work, she was dumped unceremoniously on a mud bank and left to rust away as she waited for her turn to face the scrapyards. But then one cold, foggy day, something quite amazing happened. Along to river bank came an American ship enthusiast, looking for memories of the Tyne?s heyday, when suddenly he stumbled across the remains of the poor ?Eppleton Hall? and unbelievably, just fell totally in love with her.

He arranged for her to be taken to a small Sunderland yard, where he set about the almost impossible task of trying to make her seaworthy again. After several years hard work he decided she was ready, not just to go to sea, but to actually sail all the way across the Atlantic to San Francisco, a journey of some 7,000 miles and one almost everyone said would end in disaster. Well, after battling horrendous storms and all the other close-encounters a flat bottomed paddle tug could ever encounter in the open seas, after best part of a year she actually made it.

The other great story is one that will shock and stun most of the maritime world, for, I was always told that one of the reasons we lost our great ship building industries? was because we no longer had the facilities and skills to be able to compete with the rest of the world and yet, we tell you how, during the making of this programme, we discovered that way back in the mid-1960s, ship builders Swan Hunter had advanced plans to construct three giant, one million ton super, super tankers, which would have, even to this day, been the biggest ships ever built. Perhaps for the first time ever, we tell this amazing story, a story that is so truthful, talks were already well advanced with oil companies interested in buying these would be giants of the sea? Who said we hadn?t got the facilities and skills to compete with the rest of the world!

There is so much for you to enjoy in this very special programme.

The Great Liners: Episode 41 - The Great Ports of Hull, Immingham, Grimsby, Goole and Selby

Ref: SB1041D


With the use of more very rare archive film, all unique to us, in the 40th episode we take you back in time to experience just what it was like to have been in these great East Coast ports in their heyday. The carefully restored film and sounds enables us to feel as though we are actually there in the docks, surrounded by so many ships of every shape and size, and the many Dockers and shore workers that were once an everyday part of those exciting maritime places

The programme is 70 minutes long and most of this rare film has never been made public before, so it really is a very special treat. For me, well I just loved being taken back to those bleak yet so wonderful days, days when even someone armed with a cine camera could just wander around the docks without fear of being stopped, questioned and then thrown out. Thank goodness they could, or else we would never had been able to make this amazing programme, and all the wonderful scenes it contains would have been lost forever... What a tragedy that would have been.

The Great Liners: Episode 42 - The Golden days of Shipping


The Great Liners: Episode 42 - The Golden days of Shipping

Ref: SB1042D


In this remarkable series, that as so far taken over twenty years to make, we have shown you so much of just how life used to be when the UK could boast of having the biggest shipping industry in the world. Just finding the rare film alone is a momentous task, a task that includes a global search to find film most people thought had been lost forever. Once found, the film and sounds have been professionally restored, researched and then produced into this Award Winning Series, which now consists of 42 x 65 minute programmes, programmes that cover every aspect of shipping in the 20th Century, ranging from the once great ocean liners, to cargo liners, conventional cargo ships, tankers, bulk carriers, ferries, coasters, tugs... you name it and its almost certainly to be here.

This new episode is no exception, and you know, one thing we love to try to do if humanely possible, is to recreate just what it was like to have worked or visited the nations once great ports in their heyday, when they were crammed full of ships of every type. In this programme we take you to the once great ports of South Wales including Newport, Cardiff and Swansea... It is just so good, and the variety of ships and great maritime scenes the rare film shows is, well, it really is special.

This is followed by another very special treat. We have actually managed to restore film of an operational voyage aboard the Royal Fleet Auxiliary?s magnificent ship the ?Sir Lancelot?. She lost her sister the ?Sir Galahad? in the Falklands war, so this make this film even more special. We board the ship at her Solent base and then sail with her on a voyage to Malta, Suez, Aden, and Africa, and as we go, so we are privy to her tasks and life at sea with the RFA... Such film is very rare, for RFA operations were mostly of a secret nature and cine cameras were now allowed, so for me personally, it was absolutely fascinating and something I never thought I would ever be able to experience.

Then, as if all this wasn?t enough for a great DVD on its own, we take you over to the East Coast of America, to join the Cunard cruise ship the ?Cunard Princess?. It has taken twenty years to find this film, but as is always the case with such film, the end result makes all the work we do, so worthwhile.

As we set sail on a Caribbean cruise, we are greeted on board by her Captain, who together with other senior officers give us a complete tour of the ship from top to bottom. For those of us not fortunate enough to have sailed aboard her, we get to discover what a beautiful and special ship she was, and to end the cruise, we do a complete transit of the Panama Canal, which is and probably will always be, the highlight of any cruise.

And... And there?s more, for at end of the programme we bring happiness to all those people who love cargo ships and, especially those that just love stormy weather, for more rare film takes us on a Houlder Bros bulk carrier as she battles her way across a very stormy Bay of Biscay... What a way to end.
