Reg Meuross’ moving work of social and political history (inspired by Brian W. Lavery’s book The Headscarf Revolutionaries) opens a window on Hull’s Hessle Road fishing community and fighting fishwife Lillian Bilocca’s successful campaign for improved trawler safety in the aftermath of the 1968 Triple Trawler Disaster.

Reg’s powerful songs are interwoven with narration from Brian W Lavery and rare archive footage from the time the ships went down. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
