The Reel History of Britain – BBC2 15.9.2011

At 6.30 pm on Thursday 15th September 2011, the episode of the above programme will feature the herring fishing industry in the 1920s, and will include the herring drifters of Yarmouth and Lowestoft plus the herring fishing at Port Isaac during that time.  Geoff Provis, whose great-grandfather and grand-father fished for herring at Port Isaac during the 1920s in the Boy Fletch, will discuss with Melvyn Bragg his boyhood growing up in a Cornish fishing community, and of course the method of fishing for herring during the 1920s.
