Captain Jack and the Furious Few

One hundred years ago, with U-boats and battleships terrorising Allied shipping, and zeppelins bombing Britain's towns and cities, Ulster-Scots teenager Jack McCleery was one of 12 young men tasked with a deadly mission on board the Royal Navy's `mystery ship". In this documentary, actor David Hayman tells the story of the test pilots of HMS Furious, one of the world's first aircraft carriers, whose secret mission would revolutionise warfare.
