Written in English and directed by Jonathan Lamb, the 70-minute work centres around the fascinating character of Hans Langsdorff, left, Captain of the Graf Spee.

...
The actors (left to right below) are Robert Rowe, Andrew Wall and, in the role of Langsdorff, Robert Ashton; accompanied by the voices of Imelda Staunton (star of the film Vera Drake, and teacher Dolores Umbridge in the Harry Potter films),Martin Jarvis (Titanic) and Jim Carter (The Golden Compass).
...
ut the real story behind the battle lies in the character of one man: Hans Langsdorff, captain of the Graf Spee.
Langsdorff was a hero of the First World War. torpedo expert, he had risen high in the German defence ministry in the 1930’s, before choosing to return to sea. e was given command of one of Germany’s latest and most powerful warships, and told to sink British merchant shipping - as long as he and his thousand men could survive. For four long months he roamed the southern oceans, sinking nine ships without causing a single death: his humane character and his code of professional honour meant that he treated his prisoners impeccably, and at least one of them became his friend. ut at dawn on 13 December, Langsdorff unchained a sequence of events that cost him his ship, his prestige and, a week later in Buenos Aires, his life.
Who was this gallant, troubled man?Why did he do what he did?Why did he take refuge in Montevideo instead of an Argentine port, and why did he scuttle his ship? Why, in his bedroom in Buenos Aires on the night of 20 December, did he write his last letters, then take the honourable way out?
