From the creator or the award-winning Deadliest Catch comes Deadly North Sea, an epic new series for 2010 on Bravo.
This is the everyday story of the unsung heroes, both men and women, who face death and danger on a daily basis as they risk their lives and try to earn a living in the cruel and merciless waters that divide Britain from the rest of Northern Europe.
The North Sea is a place where the water can be so cold you’ll die within minutes of falling into it, and where force 10 gales can turn a routine job into a life or death situation. But despite the dangers, thousands of people depend on it for their livelihoods. From coastguards to the so-called “rig pigs”, from fishermen to search and rescue teams and ferry workers to marine biologists, these people risk their lives every day as they attempt to earn a living in these dangerous waters.
This remarkable series focuses on a variety of characters as they go about their daily jobs. For the rest of us, a bad day at the office might mean losing an important file. For our friends on the North Sea, a bad day at the office could mean losing their lives.
