The Harbour, Series 1 Episode 6 of 6

Aberdeen Harbour, on the north east coast of Scotland, is one of Britain's oldest businesses and one of Europe's most modern ports. It is the heartbeat of the offshore oil and gas industry. Every year, more than eight thousand boats pass through the harbour waters, helped by the hidden world of the men and women who keep it running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This is their story...

In this, the final programme of the series, the dockers at Sea Cargo find themselves at the mercy of the weather as they race to prepare a vessel for a six-week voyage to West Africa. If sailing is delayed, costs will escalate by thousands.

It's man overboard for boatman Billy Duguid as he volunteers for some RNLI training in the freezing North Sea.

And a cruise ship full of Swedes headed for Balmoral sails in, while the harbour also hosts a ship's christening where all the pressure is on the godmother...
