Impressive new documentary about life aboard a warship, as you’ve never seen it before.
It is the largest, most advanced and powerful warship ever constructed in Britain, and will be home to 1,600 of the Royal Navy’s finest men and women. Welcome aboard the supercarrier HMS Queen Elizabeth.
For 18 months, Emmy award winning filmmaker Chris Terrill has been embedded within the ship’s crew, to capture an intimate and personal portrait of life aboard this new warship.
With exclusive and unprecedented access, “Strike Carrier” goes behind-the-scenes to find out what makes this mega warship so unique. We get to know its elite naval crew as they shepherd the ship through her sea trials, the first time any British warship has been filmed during these trails, and test her state-of-the-art equipment under high-pressure conditions.
“Strike Carrier” takes viewers on an epic voyage of discovery, from construction to launch, including her maiden voyage and handover in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen, to tell the extraordinary story of this impressive new warship.
