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

27 May 2015

That’s the aim of the trainees we’ve been filming aboard HMS Northumberland for Seafarers UK, in support of their annual big bash ‘Seafarers Awareness Week’ – which runs from the 20th to the 28th June. In that week, Seafarers UK highlight just how important the sea – and the seafarers who work it – are to Britain. (And the whole world in fact, but the remit’s for the UK!)

On board Northumberland,  day running out of Plymouth just now, is a group of engineering trainees – expertise always much needed by the RN, but all the more so now with the two new giant carriers coming on stream over the next few years.
