BBC Program "Trawlerman"

I missed this program last night due to RIB cleaning. Heard a lot about it and wondered if anyone knew if its going to be shown again and when ?

Lastnight was a repeat from a 5 episode series that was initially broadcast last year during the week from Monday to Friday as part of a week on the BBC to highlight fish from what I remember.

No idea when it will be repeated again I'm afraid.

Trawlermen hava a safe job compared to those!! - and there were 35 trawlers lost last year

Good series, my only slight problem with it is that the producers have tried to 'sex' it up a bit. I'm not sure that the boat v boat rivalry is quite as 'minute by minute' and in my experience a boat wouldn't broadcast over the VHF when they were 'on the fish'. More likely they'd be pretty cagey about it. However, things might be done differently up north.

for a good read about how it used to be with our trawlers going off to Iceland, the white sea etc etc read this
http://www.fleetwood-trawlers.connec...lwithhunt.html
personally I find it a fascinating article but I was brought up in a seaside fishing town and a lotta the lads at school had fathers out at sea. 3 day millionaires-out at sea for 4 weeks and then in for 3 days. Then back out again in all weathers all year round and hundreds of miles from home. Ships didnt come back sometimes, they just disappeared. The Red Falcon went down somewhere in the northern approaches a couple of weeks before xmas and my mates dad was on it. Before that my father was on a trawler that trawled up the funnel of a sister ship lost years and years before without trace. They rolled over due to the build up of ice on the superstructure or simply were overwhelmed by the weather. What a ***** life ! How things have changed-traditional navigation miles from home in blizzards by young guys who left school at 14 (although later they had Decca) - but now people think you cant out of the sight of land without a gps or two.

Very, very good series on the Discovery channel. Those guys really earn there money or not if the skipper cant get on the crab.

The latest serise has just finished but I think the re-runs are still being shown. Dont watch much on telly but i'll make time to sit and watch this prog.

And there's me thinking the North Sea was also rather wet and dangerous with even bigger waves???
