A Master Mariner's life - on Seascapes

25th September 2009
A Master Mariner's life - on Seascapes

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.

Seascapes, presented by RTE's Marine Correspondent Tom MacSweeney and produced by Marcus Connaughton, is broadcast at 10.30pm each Friday night and repeated at 5.02am on Monday mornings on RTE Radio 1. The programme is also available as a podcast and is broadcast twice a week on the digital station, RTE Choice, on Wednesday mornings at 7.30am and Saturday lunchtimes at 12.30pm.

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.
