I didn't advertise this talk in advance, because I didn't think there would be much about navigation in it. In fact, the second half is almost 100% practical navigation from a very experienced RN Specialist Navigator, (e.g. taking a relative bearing using only the 7° the field of view of standard RN binoculars), and the first half is well worth watching in any case. It also contains an excellent poem about the RN tradition of auctioning off a dead comrades belongings.
