Liners We Once Loved Dvd, Part 1: Oriana I


Out of stock



Amateur Film.

This is the first 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.

‘Oriana’ was built by Vickers-Armstrong and launched on 3rd November 1959.

Completed in 1960, she made her maiden voyage on 3rd December 1960.

She weighed 41,910 gross tons and carried 638 first class passengers, 1,496 tourist class passengers and had a crew of 903.

She was withdrawn from service in 1986 and eventually ended up in Dalian where in 2004 a typhoon damaged her beyond repair.

Approx. 59 minutes.
