TV presenter Adrian Chiles will be seen helping to steer a boat into Belfast Harbour and getting behind the controls of a crane in the docks on network television.

The BBC Two programme has an entire episode (3) from 'Our Coast' dedicated to exploring Co Down's shores from Belfast Lough down to Strangford Lough via the Ards Peninsula.

Adrian's journey starts with highlighting the work of Belfast Harbour's pilots - a team of five captains with 150 years of seafaring experience between them - who dock huge vessels safely on a daily basis.

Our Coast: Co Down is to broadcast first on BBC Two (England) tonight (8.30pm), and tomorrow on BBC Two NI (at 11am)

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
