Having just seen the Cutty Sark again reminded me of a fabulous documentary on BBC4 called "Clydebuilt: The Ships that built the Commonwealth - Episode 1 of 4 Cutty Sark"

It is presented by David Hayman and takes you through the the building of the Cutty Sark and her extraordinary history competing for the Tea trade and then the problems caused by the introduction of Steam ships using the Suez Canal and rendering sailing ships redundant.

Unfortunately it is no longer available on iplayer, but if you find a way of watching it, do. No sailor can fail to 'live the history' and you'll never look at the Cutty Sark the same way.
