Written and presented by Ludovic Kennedy
In December 1943 the most successful warship in the German Navy was sunk, off the North Cape of Norway, by the guns and torpedoes of the British Fleet. So ended a career during which the German battleship had sunk an aircraft carrier, an armed merchant cruiser, two destroyers and well over 100,000 tons of merchant shipping.
Tonight Ludovic Kennedy (whose father commanded HMS Rawalpindi, the first ship sunk by the Scharnhorst) tells the story of the battleship's four years of war. The programme includes participants in both navies and remarkable film shot at the time.
