Summary: Unedited coverage showing the launch of the Upholder Class submarine HMS Unseen at the Cammell-Laird shipyard, Birkenhead, on 14 November 1989.
Description: General views from ground level looking up at HMS Unseen on blocks in the slipway as final preparations are made; misty weather conditions. The ceremony: children gather and wave flags - VIP arrives and talks to children. Ground level camera position means that the ceremony itself is not seen, although there are close views of HMS Unseen sliding down the slipway and into the River Mersey.
