Liners We Once Loved Dvd, Part 2: Canberra

Amateur Film.

This is the second dvd in the series ‘Liners We Once Loved’.

Each programme in this series concentrates on one of the old liners that once crossed the oceans carrying passengers, cargo and mail to and from all parts of the globe.

Most of the film is taken from converted cine film taken by passengers, crew members and ship lovers on the fore-shore.

The condition of the film varies in quantity some of which is not too good but none the less worthy to be included.

Quite a lot of the clips have been shown before in other films Joe Clark has made but some of the material is new.

The idea being to bring all the material on one ship together.

‘Canberra’ was built by Harland and Wolff, Belfast and launched in 1960.

She made her maiden voyage in June 1961.

As built, she was 45,270 gross tons and carried 548 first class passengers, 1,650 tourist class and had a crew of 900.

From 1973 she was used for cruising only until taken up by the Ministry of Defence in 1982 for trooping.

She returned to cruising later that year.

She was withdrawn from service in 1997, being scrapped in Pakistan later that year.

Approx. 57 minutes.
