With exclusive access to the magnificent liner and its extensive archive of film and photographs, the documentary explores the action-packed life of the Clyde-built ship: an epic journey through some of the most dynamic periods of the 20th century. Built with the blood and sweat of the master craftsmen of the Clydebank shipyards, she helped drag a nation from the depths of the great depression and set sail as a symbol of new hope and a better future. Leaving Southampton on the 27th of May 1936 her maiden voyage to New York set a new benchmark in transatlantic travel.
