Building Britain’s Ultimate Warship

7:30pm Monday, May 31 on C4

HMS Daring is the Royal Navy’s most costly and complex warship to date: a revolutionary new ship with cutting-edge technology. Costing �1 billion, Daring is the first new destroyer built in Britain since 1985 and is to be followed by five more. Channel 4 is given special access to HMS Daring, filming the entire process from construction in 2004 through to testing and using the new weapons systems at sea. Interviews with naval experts and officers, engineers, ship workers and captains convey a sense of the scale of the build and significance of Daring for the navy.
