Synopsis

BBC documentary on modern naval life follows Royal Navy crew on missions to the Gulf and Tsunami-hit Sri-Lanka. In the interests of a 'warts-and-all' portrayal, the Royal Navy exerted no editorial control whatsoever, making for often highly charged but honest viewing. As well as the daily lives of the sailors, the programme explores the lives of their families onshore. From the shore training facility at Torpoint in Devon to the decks of HMS Chatham and Ocean, the 5, one-hour episodes paint a comprehensive picture of a sailor's life in the modern navy
