Description

Portavogie episode looking at the fishing industry of the small town. Features interviews with a number of local residents, including Ivan Beckett, Captain John Warnock, and Mabel Adair. Discussion covers the history of the town, anecdotes from local history, and explanation of the support given to the fishermen by their wives, who for years managed to keep families going through lean seasons with their needlework, exported to no less a customer than the Queen of England. Meanwhile, the fishermen remember their exotic diet of days gone by: boiled herring for breakfast, fried herring and potatoes for dinner, and for tea - you guessed it - herring again!
