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

‘FOR YEARS UNSEEN’

14 November 2017

Working with Copia Productions, video editor Andy Jones’ company, our film about the recovery of HMS Hood’s ship’s bell is online, available at http://www.maritimefilmsuk.tv/films/ – and on the website of the National Museum of the Royal Navy. Andy has done yet another brilliant job editing a gripping and inspiring documentary about the 20 years of commitment it took to bring the bell back to the surface – and to the iconic warship’s home port of Portsmouth, where it’s currently in the Museum’s Battle of Jutland exhibition. ‘For Years Unseen’ (the title comes from a moving poem by Bee Kenchington, who lost her brother in Hood) has a contemporary hero: the extraordinary undersea search expert David Mearns. Over the years, working with him has been a real privilege. Keep a look out for his autobiography, ‘’The Shipwreck Hunter’ – an extraordinary life-story.
