The last of ten programmes Back Home
When the sailor changes from his bell-bottoms to his flared jeans, his psyche changes too. Gone is the rover, to be replaced by domesticated man.
Ark is docked and lifeless as its crew disperses into the laps of families ashore-the Fleet Chief, Tom Wilkinson , scourge of ratings, to a loyal dog and a loving wife, Captain Graham-man of decision-to the minutiae of life in his Surrey village, and Leading Seaman ' Twinkle ' Powell - heart-throb of the Spanish Main - to his mother, whom he festoons with gifts.
Only those without families do not change. They carry on the enduring and endearing traditions and pursuits of sailors of all generations.
Executive producer ROGER MILLS Producer JOHN PURDIE
