Editorial Reviews

It weighs 22,000 tons and its longer than two football fields, but for the next four months, 1,000 sailors will think of it as home. HMS Illustrious (aka Lusty) has its own mayor, police force and fire service, in addition to live bombs and ammunition, military vehicles and about 25,000 pounds of food. What would it be like to live at sea for months on end? Filmed on board the actual aircraft carrier, the 4-DVD set Warship shows you exactly what its like for the men and women of the British Royal Navy.

Episode 1
The Royal Navys flagship aircraft carrier, HMS Illustrious, heads off on a 4-month deployment to the Indian Ocean. But, immediately, things go wrong.

Episode 2
The crew of the HMS Illustrious is on high alert as they head to the Strait of Gibraltar, but once ashore, they make the most of the club scene.

Episode 3
New recruits get their hands on live weapons for the first time as they prepare to go through the Suez Canal.

Episode 4
Newly trained pilots attempt to land Harrier jump jets on the ship.

Episode 5
Harrier jet pilots attempt to land on the moving ship in the dark and the Merlin helicopter boys get their guns out for target practice.

Episode 6
The HMS Illustrious and a nuclear sub, the HMS Trafalgar, get together for war games while Harrier practice vertical take-offs. Then, the ship arrives in Goa and romance blooms on shore.

This is a good set of DVDs. It is basically the updating of BBC's seminal 1970s "Sailor" aboard HMS Ark Royal, a name to conjure with if ever there was one. They are surprisingly parallel in their examinations of an old, decrepit girl heading out to try her hand at showing the flag, come what may, with a crew of...whatever we can get. "Warship" suffers from an annoying, chirpy voice-over that, allied with the editorial decisions, undermines the content. I recommend these DVDs, and hope you will have a look. This is a serious, or at least officially-approved, look at the Royal Navy in 2007-8, but from a particular point of view. And this particular point of view may damage the vista. But is the vista damaged by what the RN has truly become, or just the petty, dumb-ass decisions of the producers (with the RN's permission)? That is in your purview, dear viewer.

The Royal Navy's seriousness and professionalism has always been the goal of the US Navy, until, perhaps, the US Navy surpassed it. Perhaps because both "Sailor" and "Warship" have edited their programmes so that carriers are "on deployment" with "carrier aviators" landing on a ship for the first time in their lives, with all of the attendant failure, tends to understate the professionalism of the RN, or at least the RAF knuckle-heads they allow to land on their ships. And a lot of this may be terminology. In the US Navy, all carrier aviators undergo CarQuals, and the ship undergoes pre-deployment work-ups BEFORE they depart on cruise, so that when they pull off the pier, they are ready to do what they need to do. Perhaps in the RN the "deployment" begins when they leave port to start the work-ups and other readiness exercises.
