Graham Reid's moving dramatisation of the sinking of The Princess Victoria.

On the 31st of January, 1953 during the great storm that devasted coastal areas around the UK, the ferry between Stranraer and Larne sank off the County Down Coast.

Up to 130 souls were lost, and a few remain unaccounted for.

Losses at Sea is an imagined journey of two of these people told in tandem with the real stories of those who lost their lives that day.
