HMS Hood

Series 1 - Episode 4 HMS Hood



David Hayman meets some of the men who served on Royal Navy battlecruiser HMS Hood, and travels to Scapa Flow in the Orkneys to experience what life was like for the people working to protect the vital north Atlantic convoys during the Second World War. The actor also tries his hand at riveting to understand what it took to make the vessel strong and watertight and investigates why it was flawed from the very day it was launched.
