Napoleon's Lost Fleet

On August 1, 1798, Admiral Horatio Nelson and the British navy sailed into Abukir Bay, Egypt.  Nelson had cornered  the French.

Within a day, the French fleet was in tatters and Napoleon's flagship, the enormous Orient, had exploded savagely – only 100 of  1,000 men aboard survived … "the best naval battle of the millennium." Our film combines reenactment, underwater footage and CGI to tell the story.  Donald Sutherland narrates.

(1-hour for Discovery worldwide. Part of an award-winning Franck Goddio multimedia underwater exploration 4-part series we produced.)
