Trawlermen – All at Sea, is a special one-off film that celebrates the fishing fleets of Peterhead and Fraserburgh by pulling together some of the most dramatic and dangerous moments of their working lives. Filmed over a period of four years in the North Sea and the Atlantic, it gives a rare insight into the struggles of the fishermen who everyday carry out the most dangerous job in Britain. It also looks behind the scenes to explain just how the film crews are able to tell their incredible stories.
