BBC Time Shift – The People’s Liners: Britain’s Lost Pleasure Fleets (2015)

BBC Timeshift 2015 The Peoples Liners Britains Lost Pleasure Fleets

Timeshift casts off for a colourful voyage of ‘high teas on the high seas’ in the company of passengers and crew of the vintage steamers which were once a common sight on the rivers and coastal waters around Britain.

Far more than a means of transport, these steamers attracted a devoted following, treating their passengers, whatever their pocket, to the adventure and trappings of an ocean voyage whilst actually rarely venturing out of sight of land. A highlight of the great British seaside holiday from the 1820s until the early 1960s – and open to all – they were ‘the people’s liners’.
