This DVD, filmed between 2008 and 2011, shows the changeover from the old 1973 ferries to their 2008 built replacements. We start with the last days in service of Caedmon, Cenwulf, and Cenred. Wight Light was the first of the new ships to arrive. We see her dressed overall at Lymington for her naming and, on a rather choppy day, on test off the IOW coast. Through 2009-11 we see all three new ships in service. Wight Light is joined by Wight Sky and Wight Sun. In addition we cover a visit by the former Red Funnel ferry Balmoral and two visits by the paddle steamer Waverley to the Victorian pier at Yarmouth.
There is no commentary but an information sheet guides you through. Enjoy it all as if you were there.
