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


03 December 2014

What you really want from your client – the endorsement of the film you’ve made.  And Matthew Sheldon of the National Museum of the Royal Navy has given a clear thumbs-up to our film about HMS M33 – the first of four and maybe five. The refit, and later new-fit, of the veteran ship is going ahead at speed, with great plans for open access for the public, able and disabled alike. The key aim is to preserve as much as possible of the original fabric of this ‘monitor’, while telling her story and that of the RN in 1914-18 in a way that gets out there and grabs your attention. Watch this space as we track the progress of the project in a series of video blogs; and catch the first film ’HMS M33 – First World War Survivor’ at
