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.
