Cutty Sark ' But Tarn kent what was what fu' brawlie

There was ae winsome wench and walie:

Her cutty sark, o' Paisley ham, That while a lassie she had worn,

In longitude tho' sorely scanty, It was her best, and she was vauntie '

One hundred years ago the Cutty Sark was launched at Dumbarton on the Clyde. Designed and built by Scotsmen for a Scots owner, she sailed out of the Port of London to become the leading ship in the Australian wool trade. In those days that meant the fastest ship in the world. Today she is preserved in a permanent berth at Greenwich. This programme recalls a little of the story that made the Cutty Sark the greatest clipper of all time. Narrators:
