Trawlermen
« on: June 18, 2007, 12:26:34 AM »

For those who don't know, there's a new series of Trawlermen starting on monday night (tonight) at 7.00pm on BBC1 and every night until friday.
Expect more gratuitous shots of trawlers hammering through big seas!  Lovely!

Great programme. You have to admire them. Not a job for the faint hearted.

Hard work eh!   Those lads certainly earn their wages and I don't envy them one bit, every penny has been honestly earned.  Here's  a big Irish boat and some hefty waves on you tube:-     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-klVedl7A-Y

Good shots, but a bit close quarters just to pose for a video, maybe ? Unless there was another reason of course.  ::)

Imagine explaining a big dent in the stbd bow to the office, I don't think "I was trying to get close enough for Fred to get a good video shot of her pitching" would earn many brownie points  ;D
