Product Details

BBC drama based on real events in World War Two. In September 1942, a German U-boat sinks the British ocean liner RMS Laconia 600 miles off the African coast. When the U-Boat's commander Werner Hartenstein (Ken Duken) realises that the ship has POWs and civilians on board, he makes a decision that goes against the orders of Nazi high command and instructs his men to save as many of the shipwrecked survivors as they can. Brian Cox and Lindsey Duncan co-star.
