A Tale of Two Trawlers

on BBC Radio 4 FM

This is the story of the fate of two trawlers and their crews following their shipwreck on the dreaded Vee Skerries, which lie off Shetland's west coast.
Murdoch McPherson tells these stories, one happy and one sad, through the voices of many of those involved in both incidents, including the crew of the British Airways helicopter Bravo Juliet, whose courage and bravery just a year ago above these Skerries has been recognised throughout the world.
