We broadcast this programme live on the air and to around 250,000 people in and around Southsea Common on the night of the Trafalgar 200 Son & Lumiere, where the battle of Trafalgar was re-enacted.

We take you back to Portsmouth 100 years after the batte of Trafalgar, meeting a sailor who served on board HMS Victory in 1905. We'll hear archive audio from sailors who were at Britain's next major sea battle after Trafalgar- the battle of Jutland in 1916.

We also come up to date to meet those behind Trafalgar 200 and Britain's First Sea Lord recounts a personal story on a night where many of us had thoughts back to earlier times.
