Updates from Maritime Film UK’s Rob White, TV producer, reporter and camera operator with 30 years’ experience at the BBC, Channel 4 and ITN

CADET APPROVAL

03 September 2018

More sea time with Trinity House Vessel Galatea, to capture more cadets at sea undergoing training. Deck Cadet Abbie Sanders (picture) among those on board this time, and on departure from Lowestoft she worked with the line handling team on the foredeck. One of the key aspects of the sea training that we’ve seen with Trinity House cadets is the way they have been seamlessly woven into the life of the ship’s company, with the highly professional crews and their officers making them welcome and helping them understand their work. The feedback we’ve got has been absolutely consistent, as we’ve been able to talk freely with the many cadets we’ve filmed: they all say the ‘T.H.’ scheme provides great opportunities, not least in the widely different types of ship that can be experienced during training. A benchmark hard to beat.
