The Great Port of London (Part Two) (Episode 36)
This wonderful 60 minute programme shows previously unseen film of London Docks during its heyday, when it was the biggest and busiest port in the world.
There are ships of every shape and size for as far as the eye can see, and is an absolute must for every ship enthusiast and especially for all the people who knew those docks during those exciting years.
A Voyage to the Amazon (Episode 37)
This is so different from all the other programmes we have made on shipping, for it actually takes us on a Booth Line ship, sailing from Liverpool to the Amazon, and then over 2000 miles up it to Iquitos, which is as far as any deep sea ship could go.
You can sail as far as Manaus today aboard one of those air-conditioned, floating blocks of flats, but to
do so on a basic Booth Line ship all those years ago is something you just have to see. One thing’s for
sure, there will never ever be another programme like it… Amazing.
