'Trawlermen' screening, RAI

At the Royal Anthropological Institute’s screening/meeting room,
50 Fitzroy St., W1T 5BT
You are warmly invited to the screening of an episode from the BBC series ‘Trawlermen’ followed by a Q&A with Tom Sheahan, producer and director, who is perfectly suited to address issues dealing with the impact and the making of the programme.
‘Trawlermen’ is a Documentary series about a group of trawler fishermen in Peterhead, Scotland.
Year in and year out, trawlermen brave the worst conditions of the North Sea, in every kind of weather, to bring fish to the country’s tables. They have one of the most dangerous job in Britain. Over two seasons of filming for Trawlermen, the BBC has had unprecedented access to the men of the Scottish fishing fleet, their wives and families, as they struggle to adapt to the realities of fishing in the twenty first century.
