An Irish filmmaker has been all at sea on board a warship that survived the Battle of Jutland.

The ship was the star as Northern Visions premièred a movie on HMS Caroline - a World War I light cruiser that has been stationed in Belfast since 1924 - seeing WWII service and then being used as the base for the Royal Navy Reserve until its decommissioning.
