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


16 October 2017

A day trip to Dover to film Catherine Holt, alumna of the Shipshape Heritage Training Partnership course – now in a key heritage job; not on the sea, but certainly near it. She’s won the post of Assistant Curator at the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment and Queen’s Regiment Museum in Dover Castle. Spectacular location and name! Maritime Films UK first filmed Cat for our first Shipshape Heritage Training Partnership film. Then she was at Chatham Historic Dockyard working on some important artefacts in a deep cellar – now she’s well and truly well placed, looking after day-to-day operations in the ‘P W R R’ and Queen’s Regiment museum. It’s at the top of the castle complex, so spectacular views over the Channel literally go with the territory. As does a steep climb up a long road – car or taxi recommended.
