The name of Britain's most celebrated naval tactician is inextricably linked to the word 'victory', whether in reference to his famous ship or in memory of his many triumphs. Horatio Nelson led a charmed existence upon the waves - but his life on dry land was to prove less victorious and far more controversial as his personal dealings became something of a scandal. A married man, yet openly flaunting his affair with Lady Emma Hamilton, wife of Lord Hamilton, Nelson caused outrage in both London society and within the higher echelons of the Navy. This film, narrated by Graham McTavish, looks at Nelson's life and nautical career.
