‘Jutland: WW1’s Greatest Sea Battle’ on TV in the UK tonight


“Never before had either navy lost so men on a single day.” – First Sea Lord Admiral Sir Philip Jones

The Battle of Jutland – 31st May to 1st June 1916 – was a naval battle fought by the Imperial German Navy’s High Seas Fleet and the British Royal Navy’s Grand Fleet. It was a large and controversial naval engagement.

As the 100 year anniversary approaches an expedition led by Gert Normann Andersen and his Danish crew, marine archaeologist Dr. Innes McCartney, and author and grandson of the British commander, Nick Jellicoe, has set out to build an accurate map of the battle site to fundamentally alter our understanding of the one of greatest battles in modern history.

This new forensic analysis examines the archaeology of the battle and will be broadcast:
