aai The Sea Harvesters is an authentic record of work in the fishing fleets during the 1930's. In this fine collection of films, partly in colour, you will hear fishermen, some of whom were in the films, tll of their experiences in the great days of a lost era of fishing. Fishing Fleet (1939) filmed by J. Evans Gordon, illustrates Lossiemouth's fishing industry highlighting the Seine fishing method. Prize winner at the 7th Scottish Amateur Film Festival 1940, It also shows preperations for a voyage and the landing of the catch. In Deep Sea Days (1930) James Blair filmed life on board a Fleetwood trawler as the fishing grounds by St Kilda are selected, the trawl is dropped and the catch landed and cleaned. Voyage to Stornoway(*) Is a story of the Musselburgh fleet as seen by the camera of Alex Lowe in the 1930's. Mush of this film is beautifully photographed in coour as it portrays the annual trip to Stornoway to join the herring chase at the start of the season. Toilers of the Deep ( 1940) follows the lives of a trawler crew as they set out to sea on a nine day trip. Next we travel forward to the 1950's from Tom Ralston's unique colour film Ring Net Herring Fishing. Finally back to 1943 for North Sea Herring Fleet by Aberdeen's James E Henderson Ltd.
