  1. This is a very good video with one glaring omission. BMP4 requests that in the event of any piracy attack or probable attack, whether successful or not, that the FIRST call by the Master is to UKMTO in Dubai. This vital step is omitted in the video, giving the impression that it is not required. IT IS REQUIRED , whether or not there is a security team in board. Accordingly this video is giving a misleading message. Shame, as otherwise it is excellent.
