The End Of The Line - Channel 4 Saturday 5th March

Do you think The Good Life could be remade, with me or Dave playing Tom Good (maybe not!)? If you have seen something on TV or heard something on the radio recently that you want to talk about, tell us here.

The End Of The Line - Channel 4 Saturday 5th March

Did anyone else happen to catch this (no pun intended)? Absolutely fascinating, though pant-wettingly terrifying and hand-wringingly depressing at the same time. I imagine it'll be on 4OD for a while if you missed it and want to find out more about the money-grabbing couldn't-care-less attitude the Westernised World (and in particular, Europe) have towards large-scale fishing.

Imagine having no edible seafood at all by 2050 - that's the scenario that we face if we don't do something fast; but rather than being a grim, sanctimonious and condescending documentary it was extremely watchable - Charles Clover is a very engaging and articulate chap, and is just the sort of figurehead you need for a campaign such as this.

Sadly I missed this, I did want to watch it but got caught up with other things. Glad to hear it was good.

i didn't see it on CH4 though did go to a screening with the director last year (I was based in University of Liverpool's Marine Biology unit).

I thought it was a very good film and highlighted a lot of the issues very well.

In the post-film chat though he did seem to disregard a lot of important issues. the major one i recall was that he was pushing for the use of no-fish zones as his major protection of fish. this works nicely for fish that don't move much, but fish such as tuna cover vast distances, so this is not really a viable option...


good film tho :iconbiggrin:
