Based on: The novels by C.S. Forester
Story: First of the televised maritime adventure based of the novels by C.S. Forester. In 1794, against a backdrop of the Anglo-French wars, seventeen-year-old seaman Horatio Hornblower (Ioan Gruffudd) boards the Justinian at Portsmouth. Nervous, seasick and afraid of heights, Hornblower soon falls prey to resident bully Jack Simpson, but refuses to blab to his superiors, even when Simpson beats him. Hornblower's fortunes change for the better when he is transferred to the frigate Indefatigable under Sir Edward Pellew (Robert Lindsay), who puts him in charge of his own division. Hornblower soon earns the respect of his men, and becomes a hero after boarding the Marie Gallant in the Bay of Biscay.
