Description

In this second 59-min video titled "A Hundred Years Of P&O" we continue our travel through time, starting at the end of World War II to the present day. We look at how the company recovered from its almost disastrous war losses and created one of the most modern and impressive fleets of passenger and cargo ships the world has ever seen.

This rare archive film, most of which has never been made public before, allows us to witness the introduction of such great ships as the Cushan, Iberia, Himalaya and Arcadia to rival the threat of Orient Lines magnificient Oronsay, Orsova and Orcades.
