12.05pm: So - based on true events. Set in 1961. Submarine distaster at the height of the Cold War.
12.06pm: Buttons. Action. Men. Uniforms. Liam Neeson doing faint Russian accent - the way to signify they're all Soviet rather than actually talking in Russian.
12.07pm: I'm finding this quite exciting.
