Southampton: Gateway to the World (DVD)

R78.00

Southampton has always been regarded as the cruise ship capital of England, but it also plays a major part in the UK's export and import of commodities, and can also be considered as a gateway to the world. In this fascinating programme we bring to you unprecedented scenes of daily port action, including the towage of passenger cruise ships, liners, container ships and tankers. A look at the UK's second largest container terminal will see the unloading of containers by massive cranes and loaded onto trucks and straddle carriers. Join with us as we get up-close and personal to some of the largest ships in the world. See just how Southampton's tugboat crews operate their vessels together with the enormous size of our modern day ships, and witness the action as engineers grapple with bow and stern ropes to make safe the passage of ships into Southampton. Southampton has over the years played host to many new ships and has always welcomed them in style. Our cameras were there to record two very spectacular debuts. These were P&O Cruise's Ventura and Cunard's magnificent new ship the Queen Victoria. We also take you on board the Queen Victoria to see the splendour of her interior, and enjoy the pomp and pageantry as the Queen Victoria departs for her maiden voyage through a spectacular fireworks display. Staying with Cunard, history was made in April 2008 when Cunard's three serving ships were all seen together at the same time. Our cameras were there to record this historic event as it unfolded, and the scenes from our tugboat Svitzer Surrey are spectacular. Other spectacular scenes include Southampton's boat train, a visit to the VTS (vessel tracking services) facility, Southampton's grain terminal, and lots of tugboat action. This is truly a magnificent programme highlighting major maritime events from this historic port. This amazing production could also be seen as a promotional tool for shipping companies as it is both entertaining and education
