Fish Town (BBC 1 Scotland/HD & BBC iPlayer only | Monday 28th January 2019)
James Cosmo narrates a six-part series about the UK’s biggest fishing port, Peterhead in north east Scotland. The fishing boat Zenith sets out from Fraserburgh – 20 miles away from Peterhead – in search of whitefish and prawns. At the helm is 26-year-old skipper Adam Robertson. He starts fishing 40 miles out to sea, but his net fills up with mud from the seabed which means he has to haul in early. The Peterhead boat Amity is on its way to a fishing ground near the Shetland Isles when it runs into trouble. Something is tangled in the propeller. As night falls, skipper Phil Reid puts a waterproof camera over the side to try to work out what is causing the problem, but it is too dark to see. Back on land, a 300-tonne trawler comes into Peterhead port for a paint job. It goes onto the harbour’s ship lift and is hoisted out of the water – one of the port’s most impressive sights. Local boat painters then have just six days to get it cleaned, painted, and back into the water.
