The oil bonanza, which breathed life into the nation's economy, also spelled death to many young men who worked under the icy waters of the North Sea, constructing and maintaining the oil-rig. This toll of diving tragedy prompted the Government to set up schools training divers up to a recognised standard. One such is Fort Bovisand, Plymouth.
In this film the progress is charted of 16 would-be divers, who embark on a three-month course that will equip them for work on the rigs. One by one the 16 are eliminated.

In a world that no longer speaks of death and resurrection, the great Victorian hymns are the warehouses of forbidden emotions: hunger for comfort, dread of dying, hope of eternity.
Change and decay in all around I see,
O thou who changest not, abide with me.
This film shares the moods of a hymn that can take us to the heart of religious emotion: images of the real world bathed in the glow of 'Heaven's morning': convictions that have not lost their power.
