: The Call of the Sea: Living the Fishing

Continuing the series that looks back at life at sea for British sailors earlier this century.
The story of the final heyday of the fishing fleet in the thirties, when there were over 50,000 British fishermen meeting the demand from the nation's booming fish and chip shops. From trawler skippers to Scots herring girls, those who earned their living by fishing recall the fierce competition in the single most dangerous occupation of the time. Among them are Harry Downs from Hull, who remembers the hardship of working on an Atlantic trawler: "Sometimes we'd work 48 hours non-stop... you'd be in agony, freezing cold, sea boils on your hands, but you couldn't stop for anything if you had a good catch."
Narrated by Tom Georgeson.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.
