On the Black Sea: Sailors of Sevastopol

Episode 5 of 5

The Crimean coast, where Russia meets Turkey, is a region of great strategic importance.

The Crimean coast is so important that Russia seized it from Ukraine. But what have been the costs of gaining this valuable prize? The final leg of our five-episode journey across and around the Black Sea takes us to the port of Sevastopol.

And we also reveal details about the next mini-series from The Compass.
