From the Sea to the Air
Episode 1x3; Feb 20, 2008
The second half of the 20th Century was the era of the supertanker, and Belfast was at the forefront of the industry once more. Supersizing the building dock that built the Titanic to accommodate this new breed of leviathan ships, the SS Canberra Belfast yet again produced the world's most innovative passenger liner. But this space-age looking ship would soon be caught up in the middle of a war - one she narrowly survived, and one from which she would return a hero.
1x3: From the Sea to the Air
1x2: Ships at War
1x1: Titanic and the Race for the Atlantic
