This 98 minute video covers the history of the Union Castle Line from the 1850s to 1977 when the departure of the Windsor Castle from Table Bay closed this chapter of maritime history. Commentary is provided by Laurens van der Post, interspersed with interviews with George Young (Cape Times Shipping Correspondent) Sir Nicholas Cayzer (last Director of Cayzer Irvine), and numerous ships’ Captains and Pursers. The film is a must see for those who travelled by sea in those times.
