In 1976 BBC camera crews were invited on board Britain’s best-loved warship, the aircraft carrier Ark Royal, to record what was intended to be her last voyage.

As the Ark Royal sailed for America, the cameras captured a unique record of daily life on board for the officers and ratings, as well as the workings of an operational aircraft carrier with full a complement of fighter and bomber aircraft and helicopters.

Sailor remains one of the best series ever made about the Royal Navy, as well as providing a historic record of the passing of one of Britain’s greatest fighting ships.
