For those of you who might want to find out more about William Beatty following the programme, he wrote 'The Death of Lord Nelson' in 1807 only two years after Trafalgar. I have an electronic copy of the book from the Gutenberg Project website. The Death of Lord Nelson

For those of you with an iphone you can get an app called 'Free Books' which allows you to download Gutenberg project books and search for the book on there.

The book provides a fascinating account of the events immediately leading up to the battle and the tragic aftermath.
