Air na Rigs/Life Offshore
Cò ris a tha e coltach a bhith ag obair air clàr ola? A bhith a' fàgail comhfhurtachd an dachaigh agus a' siubhal ann a heileacoptair gu d' obair ann am meadhan a' chuain? Cò ris a tha e coltach a bhith ag obair fad dusan uair an uaireadair, latha as dèidh latha airson ceala-deug gun latha dheth, air falbh bho chàirdean is charaidean? Bidh sinn a' faicinn an dòigh-beatha seo troimh shùilean an luchd-obrach: bho dhrilearan gu criutha deic, agus bho stiùbhardan gu stiùirichean - 's ann ainneamh a gheibhear an cothrom fhaicinn steach dhan t-saoghal dìomhair seo. Air an clàr-ola as motha san Rìoghachd Aonaichte "Buzzard", agus an clàr-ola as ùra sa Chuan a Tuath "Golden Eagle". Bidh sinn a' leantainn na fireannaich 's na boireannaich a th' air ceann caol gnìomhachas na h-ola - àrainneachd cho garbh agus dùbhlanach 's a ghabhas. What is life offshore really like? What is it like to leave the comfort of your own home and fly in a helicopter to work in the middle of the sea? What does it feel like to work 12-hour shifts for 14 days straight, with no days off and away from family? We experience it through the eyes of those who work there. From drillers to deckhands, caterers to controllers, this is an honest look into what it feels like to work offshore on the largest North Sea oil platform, Buzzard, and on the newest platform in the North Sea, Golden Eagle. Through this unique access, we get a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse into an often secretive world that is inaccessible to most of us. Over 70% of the UK's primary energy comes from oil and gas, and we meet some of the men and women whose job it is to work in this hostile and challenging environment.
