I see that a new series of Trawlermen starts on BBC 1 next Tuesday (09/09) - by the looks of it this series will have only 3 episodes - hour in length
Documentary series following the work of Scottish fishermen. The young crew of the prawn trawler New Dawn are recovering from the devastating loss of one of their shipmates at sea. On the pair-trawler Sunrise there is a Shakespearean struggle between rival brothers as to who will inherit the wheelhouse from their father. Featuring events rarely captured on camera - dramatic helicopter rescues, a massive freak wave and ropes caught in propellers.
