On tonight's Seascapes, Tom MacSweeney interviews a Master Mariner, who talks about the highs and lows of a career at sea, and paints a picture of life on the oceans of the world.
Along with all the usual latest marine news and views, Seascapes will also be looking at the latest developments in the lifeboat service; and what Dubliners said to the Guinness bargemen. Did you know that half the world’s container business is controlled by four multi-national companies, according to the world dockers’ union? And: Aircraft warning – beware high/flying ships! To get the full story, tune in at 10:30pm tonight (Friday 25th September 2009).
And don't forget: The Seascapes book has been published by Mercier Press to mark 1,000 editions of the programme.
