The 120-billion-pound cruise industry was brought to its knees when the Covid-19 crisis ravaged countries across the world.

Hundreds of ships had to be brought to a standstill and Billion Pound Cruises: All At Sea asks if everything that could have been done to protect passengers and crew was realised.

With thousands of passengers put in quarantine aboard ships stuck out at sea, the documentary hears the personal stories of the passengers going through the nightmare and from renowned experts.

What should have been a holiday of a lifetime for passengers led to people stuck on board ships with a deadly virus with no way to get off.


Amazon Prime

Friday 3rd July

Hanna returns for a second series, after viewers were introduced to skilled teenage assassin (Esmé Creed-Miles), who had been raised in isolation by her father Erik (Joel Kinnaman) to protect her from the CIA and especially Marissa Wiegler (Mireille Enos).

Hanna discovered a facility with a whole host of other genetically weaponised girls just like her, before being forced to once again go on the run. However, this time she travelled alone after Erik was fatally wounded.

The second series is expected to focus on Hanna’s connection with the trainee girls who have been brought up very differently to her.

Series two will see Wiegler and Sophie (Rhianne Barreto) return from series one, plus Dermot Mulroney, Anthony Welsh and Severine Howell-Meri will join the cast.
