Officers and Gentlemen

In this four part series, we follow a group of Officer Cadets from their first day at Britannia Royal Naval College to their passing out parade, through the joys and frustrations that come with embarking on what, for many, is a lifelong dream.

We follow the new cadets every step of the way as they struggle through the biggest challenge of their lives in a bid to pass out as officers of the world’s most prestigious Navy.

Who will make it through to the end and who will come to realise that they don’t have what it takes to become a Royal Navy Officer?
