In the Heart of the Sea 6 January 2022: Thursday on BBC One

In the winter of 1820, a New England whaling vessel, the Essex, encounters a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. In the harrowing aftermath, the ship’s surviving crew are pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive.

Based on the real-life maritime disaster that inspired Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick.
