Trawlermen 8pm Bbc 1

Recommended Posts

If the nearest you've been to a stiff Southwester was in the toilet of a camp pub in Newquay, then this new series will open your eyes.

Fill your boots with TRAWLERMEN at 8pm BBC 1.

Real men - doing a hard, dangerous job to put the fish on our plates.

Contrast these doughty seafarers with the jobsworths, MP's, spivs, council drones, chancers, cheapjacks, con-men, EA's, bankers, BTL landlords, IFA's, duck house fanciers, petty officials, tv property rampers, expenses artists, and the other nonsense-merchants who infest society.

Real men; real danger; real haddock.

No wonder the first series got up to 4 million viewers on BBC 2 - nearly twice the audience of landlubbers Krusty, Beeny and their ilk.

Can you see Phil or Krusty holding their own down below in a Force 10?

If the choice at 8pm is between men worth every dangerous pound they earn, and Krusty and Phil traipsing round other peoples 'properties' talking about 'potential'....

Hand me that gutting knife, because I'm with the fishermen!!!!

Does this description also apply to Spanish, Portuguese, Icelandic fishermen, doing the same job?

It's right though - isn't it the most dangerous job now that the mines have closed?

Correct, sir.

I salute all deepwater trawlermen, where'ere they hail from.

A plate of well-vingared cod and chips, and an hour spent with these heroes is some small consolation for the living hell of Brown's Britain..

I once worked on a trawler. Boy, it was tough. Unfortunately I have to wait until late tonight to watch it as BBC Wales has put on some rubbish for its lucky viewers.

Fishing's dangerous...

But mining's dangerous too...

But which is the most dangerous?

There's only one way to find out!

But I've forgotten what it is.....

A mate of mine died on a trawler aged 21. he lost his footing in a storm and got thrown about the boat, died from head injuries.

Make no bones about it when your at sea in a storm,theres nothing quite so dangerous. Especially when your on a small boat and trying to work.

They've mentioned a few times on trawlermen that if you get washed overboard in those conditions thats your lot.

I used to drink with fishermen and Im here to tell you that they're the salt of the earth. The sort you want beside you in a crisis.

Totally agree, the salty sea dogs earn every penny ten times over.

Forget national service, the MPs/ should all have to do a tour with these guys. How about if you earn over a certain amount in a bailed out bank it is compulsory to do a tour!

Surely it's not beyond the wit of man to come up with some sort of attachment system as used on sail boats.

I think it's called a 'rope'. Might be wrong though. Nearest I ever got to being a sea dog was having a tug whilst watching the daughter in 'Howards Way.'

Well Quork the problem is they're working at the same time not just standing there. So imagine everyone being attached by a rope. One big tangle aye. Got it now.

They aint stupid as you've implied.

It happens here. Scottish prawns go to Thailand to be shelled and packed, then come back here to be eaten. Incredible.

And then most get shipped off to the Continent as our country does not tend to appreciate quality seafood. :(

As for the deadliest catch ? Mental for sure. Sometimes they make no money. However some of the ones who have worked for a few years ? They can get tens of thousands for a week's work. Not bad. Yes it is dangerous, but I doubt it is anywhere near as dangerous as wandering around Afghanisatn wearing a British Army uniform. And they get paid that sort of money for 2 years work.
