"We shall have a pell-mell battle...and that is all I want." - Admiral Nelson, Before Trafalgar
THE BATTLE ”England expects every man will do his duty.” Nelson’s celebrated signal opened the Battle of Trafalgar, the most famous engagement of the age of sail. Tragically, he would not live to enjoy his crowning glory. Cut down by a French sniper at the very moment of triumph, his greatest victory was also destined to be his memorial, for his fleet ended forever the Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte’s dream of an invasion of England.

Also featuring dramatized “eye-witness” accounts shot aboard Nelson’s famous flagship, the program includes special 3D graphic images and superb contemporary images to tell the story of a momentous day in naval history.
