Mario Van Peebles,
Warship was an excellent series about the Royal Navy in the 1970s. Naturally in a series about a warship in peacetime , you couldn't expect flaming guns every episode- the show dealt principally about the private and professional lives of the ship's company,but was interspersed with moments of high drama, including if memory serves, high seas terrorism, submarine rescue, and a parallel Amethyst incident. The cast, especially the c.o. were very good,I believe on occasion they even fooled the regulars. It belonged up there with the best BBC productions , and certainly warrants release on DVD. Compared to the absolute tripe that passes for free to air television entertainment today, WARSHIP would be a breath of fresh (sea) air.
