Several shots of exterior of the 11-year-old trawler 'Prince Charles' in dock at Hull. Interior shots show the bridge, the engine room, cabins, living room, kitchen. Doesn't look very comfortable!
Exteriors of new fishing vessel 'Lady Parkes' in dock. Shots inside the ship show the better conditions - bridge, engine room, cabins, galley and dining room - commentator says by trawler standards they are luxurious.
Below decks we see the cold store and fish preparation bay. A man opens a freezer door to show enormous big blocks of large fish, frozen solid. Several shots of frozen fish travelling along conveyor belts on deck and sorted into piles that stand on the dockside.
