The full story of the development of naval seapower.
From the Viking Longships crossing the Atlantic, the emergence of fighting ships like the Mary Rose and the success of the Galleon best demonstrated by Sir Francis Drakes's Golden Hinde and the rout of The Spanish Armada.
All the major naval conflicts are examined and the programme shows how new designs influenced naval warfare tactics and the final outcome.
The programme also investigates the changing role of sailors in true warriors of the sea as best demonstrated during the Napoleonic Wars culminating in Nelson's success at The Battle of Cape St. Vincent and Trafalgar aboard The Victory.
As we enter the 20th Century Jutland and Midway prove pivotal in determining the outcome of global conflict.
The changing aspects of naval weaponry is also analysed as this changes throughout the centuries from cannons to cannonade to torpedoes coming right up to date with sea launched nuclear weapon technology.
The 20th Century also saw the emergence of the aircraft carrier who's ability to deliver airborne capability to far flung regions has also proved significant.
