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This video brings it all back in graphic reality and serves as a lasting historical document and tribute to all those people and ships that once made the Port of London, the greatest seaport in the world.

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.
