IN NELSON'S FOOTSTEPS: In Nelson's Footsteps

In this three part series we follow in the footsteps of Horatio Nelson in his Native Britain, to see the sights that he saw and to explore the influences which shaped his character and formed his genius. In the last episode our presenter Colin White meets with one of Nelson's descendants. We learn what life would have been like on board the Victory from the man who directly follows in Nelson's footsteps. We visit the Admiralty boardroom where the plans for the Battle of Trafalgar were made. Colin describes the last few hours of Nelson's life on the Victory before he was fatally wounded. We see and hear how Nelson's life and death was celebrated at his funeral at St. Paul's Cathedral.
