It has been produced by Centre Screen Productions whose staff worked alongside the National Museum of the Royal Navy and designers Petrichor to create a number of exhibits that explore the working lives of the crew that served on the ship.

They include what the company calls ‘an immersive film experience’ displayed across seven projectors in the engine room of the ship, telling the story of her role at Gallipoli and in the Dvina River campaigns.

It was shot on Lepe Beach in Hampshire and at the Big Shed Studio in Manchester, where Centre Screen’s main office is based.
