AS ONE of the most advanced warships of its kind in the world, HMS Duncan finds itself at the centre of some of the most sensitive operations – and Channel 5 were there to capture it all.

The new four-part series, Warship: All At Sea will document the lives of the nearly 280 men and women who call the Royal Navy Type 45 Destroyer, based in Portsmouth, home.

Mark Tattersall, executive producer, Artlab Films, said: ‘We are very proud of the unparalleled access afforded to Artlab Films when making this new series for Channel 5 and we have captured some extraordinary moments on board HMS Duncan over the last seven months.’

From the Ship’s Catering team to its Navigator and its Captain Eleanor Stack, Channel 5 and Artlab Films followed all the action for seven months.

Lucy Willis, Commissioning Editor at Channel 5, said: ‘We’re hugely grateful to the Royal Navy and HMS Duncan’s crew for allowing us to film day to day life on this NATO flagship vessel at such a dramatic time.

‘The series will undoubtedly make for gripping viewing.’
