7th September 2015 - Press Release

TV's Natasha Kaplinsky tells the world about Dover's port



One of the most powerful voices in British industry has chosen the Port of Dover to help highlight the nation's world-beating maritime trade.

The UK Chamber of Shipping has commissioned ITN to make a suite of films showcasing the vital role the industry plays in everyday life.

Fronted by TV news anchor Natasha Kaplinsky, the series has been released to coincide with the second London International Shipping Week – giving it maximum exposure to a worldwide audience.

The Dover film - featured in episode three - “World Trade” - focuses on the port’s iconic status, the volumes of people and cargo it handles on a daily basis and its major plans for the future, including the Dover Western Docks Revival project.

UK chamber chief executive, Guy Platten, said: “This innovative series of films showcases the UK’s varied and world-leading maritime services.

“These films show the industry in all its glory, but are also a mark of the chamber’s ambition to champion the industry to a wide audience.

“The UK is a proud maritime nation and we are prouder still of being able to show it off.”

Dover was the only port chosen to feature in the series. Its chief executive, Tim Waggott, said: “We were over the moon when the UK Chamber of Shipping asked us to take part and represent UK ports.

“It’s fantastic to think the work we’re doing here for the benefit of our customers and our community is being used by an influential shipping body to promote the importance of the British maritime industry to the rest of the world.”
