Cruise and Ocean Liner History: THE GOLDEN AGE OF OCEAN LINERS
The Golden Age Of Ocean Liners – Excellent BBC Documentary…
Paul Atterbury embarks on an alluring journey into the golden age of ocean liners, finding out how these great ships made such a mark on the popular imagination and why they continue to enchant to this day.
Paul’s voyage takes him around Britain and reveals a story of design, politics, propaganda, Hollywood glamour and tragedy.
Along the way, he uncovers some amazing survivals from the liners of the past – a cinema in Scotland built from the interiors of the SS Homeric, a house in Poole in which cabins from the Mauretania are lovingly preserved – as well as the design inspiration behind the first great liners.
