Episode 2: Invincible - The Royal Navy's Greatest Ship

Summary

Raksha Dave and Alex Langlands examine the history of HMS Invincible, which was captured from the French in 1747 and helped transform the Royal Navy with the lessons it taught about organisation and ship design. For more than 260 years, HMS Invincible lay at the bottom of the Solent, but archaeologists are now diving beneath the waves in a £2m excavation to discover more about this game-changing ship.
