Nelson's celebrated signal opened the Battle of Trafalgar, the most famous engagement of the age of sail. Tragically he would not live to enjoy his crowning glory. Cut down by a French sniper at the very moment of triumph, his greatest victory was also destined to be his memorial, for his fleet ended for ever the Emperor Napoleon's dream of an invasion of England. 'The Battle Of Trafalgar' draws extensively on 'I Remember Nelson' and 'HMS Defiant', two of the most accurate reconstructions of the age of sail ever filmed. Also featuring dramatised re-enacted accounts shot aboard Nelson's famous flagship HMS VIctory. The programme includes special 3D graphic images and superb contemporary images to tell the story of a momentous day in Naval history.
