Horatio Hornblower Series
Full Show Summary

The famed fiction British naval hero is brought to life in the first of four tv movies. In this one, the young Hornblower (Ioan Gruffudd) gets his first ship where he has to overcome seasickness and a bully (Dorian Healy), who is after him because his abilities far exceeds all of the others on board. In the end it leads to a duel - but not between Hornblower and the bully. Rather one of Hornblower's friends forcibly takes his place as he feels guilt for not dealing with the bully years before. Unfortunately, the duel does not go well and Hornblower must still eventually face down the man in a second duel.
