Tall Ships on the Tyne Welcome aboard the biggest gathering of Tall Ships the country has ever seen for a magnificent festival of sail, music and celebration in the company of Jill Halfpenny and Craig Conway, joined by the comic talents of Brendan Healy, Billy Mitchell and Mike Elliott.
This lyrical souvenir features over 100 Tall Ships from more than 30 countries as they visited the Newcastle/Gateshead Quayside for four memorable days in July 2005. More than 1.5 million people came to see this great spectacle and now you can relive the magic of the event including that awesome firework display when the Tyne became a River of Fire, and watch again as the largest Parade of Sail in the history of the event makes its stately progress to the starting line.
Experience the realities of life aboard as we join one of the crews on their voyage to join the festival and enjoy some wonderful music from the Northumbria Anthology, featuring songs by Graeme Danby, Judy Dinning, Sting and Jimmy Nail.
The programme is narrated by Eric Robson.
