History Makers - Nelson

The name of Britain's most celebrated naval tactician is inextricable linked to "victory". Whether in reference to his famous ship or in memory of his many triumphs, Horatio Nelson lived a charmed existence upon the waves.

His life on dry land, however, was to prove less "victorious" and far more controversial as his personal dealings became something of a scandal. A married man, yet openly flaunting his affair with Lady Emma Hamilton, wife of Lord Hamilton, Nelson caused outrage in both London society and within the higher echelons of the navy. Narrated by Graham McTavish.
