Have You watched any of the Deadliest Catch Programmes?. I think Trawlermen is a better series.

Deadliest Catch is an intresting programme, but I can't help think that there were guys from Grimsby, Hull and Aberdeen, 30/40 years ago, who were doing much the same job up Iceland,Greenland,Bear Island in weather just as bad for anywhere up to 6 weeks at a time, and for less money!, pity there was no sky TV around in those days!!
