Few people will know just how very recently the problem of navigation at sea was actually resolved - via the development of an accurate marine chronometer, and of the decades long efforts of it's inventor John Harrison. This excellent dramatization brings these absorbing facts to light. I found the flashbacks early in the movie a little hard to follow - if viewers have a chance to first read the book 'Longitude' by Dava Sobel (or better still 'The Illustrated Longitude') they will probably follow the events more easily. This story is an important part of history and well worth watching.
