If you've ever wondered why you couldn't read that chart, maybe Friday's Seascapes (RTE Radio 1, 10.30pm) and their investigation into the 'black science' of navigation will clear up the mystery. Award-winning marine journalist Tom MacSweeney and his team have a few other features for you too...
Also covered on Friday's show:
• 'Women and Children first'
• Sea law
• Cork crosses the Equator
• The threat of sea lettuce
• News from the Inland Waterways
Along with a review of all the latest marine news and views
And check out the Seascapes book, which was published by Mercier Press to mark 1,000 editions of the programme.
