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


07 September 2022

The project manager on the mast removal – and as it would have been, on and beyond – was former naval officer Stephen Green. Stephen was a classic RN type, well-organized, calm and collected, self-disciplined and self-motivated, with complete commitment to the project. An imposing figure, and always there for Maritime Films UK to help us capture this latest phase in the multi-year restoration – and always right on time. It was therefore an ominous surprise for the National Museum of the Royal Navy team when he failed one day to check in or call ahead of a meeting. In the end police and colleagues went round to his home. They had to force entry, and were shocked to discover that he had suddenly died. All of us will miss him sorely. R.I.P. Stephen – we and Victory are forever in your debt.
