Maritime Movie: Longitude


We found the A&E movie Longitude very entertaining and informative.  It chronicles John Harrison's 50 year quest to win the Longitude Prize for a method of accurately calculating longitude at sea.Interwoven with that is the story of  Rupert Gould, a WWI retired Royal Navy man who spent his life restoring Harrison's four sea clocks. This was adapted from Dava Sobel's bestselling book.
