Television presenter Dan Snow joined members of the Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trust Dive Group to explore the wartime Sunderland flying boat T9044, which sank off the town in a storm in 1940.

The visit was filmed and is due to be shown on BBC One’s The One Show in September.

As well as diving on the wartime flying boat, the 360 Production crew also visited the Flying Boat Centre, where Dan interviewed Wing Commander Derek Martin, patron of the Sunderland Trust, who flew T9044 just weeks before it sank.

The history buff came to the famous Stansted exhibition to film a piece on crime and punishment for the popular BBC One show presented by Adrian Chiles and Christine Bleakley.

“We’ve been filming at some fantastic sites across the country from the Tower of London to Edinburgh Castle,” said Dan. “It’s great to be able to film at Mountfitchet Castle which is a wonderful example of a fortified medieval site.”

The film crew used many of the castle’s exhibits including a cat o’ nine tails traditionally used for flogging, a branding iron and stocks.

The features on crime and punishment will not be shown on The One Show until January.
