Armed merchant's ship explored in new BBC series


The Swash Channel wreck has been described as the most important wreck discovered since the Mary Rose - and now it is to star in a new BBC series.

The 17th Century armed merchant ship was found close to the entrance of Poole harbour.

It will feature in Britain's Secret Seas, which uncovers some of our underwater treasures.

BBC South's Sally Taylor speaks to the programme presenter Paul Rose about the Swash Channel wreck.
