Aberdeen Harbour, on the North East coast of Scotland, is one of Britain's oldest businesses and one of Europe's most modern ports.

It is the heartbeat of the offshore oil and gas industry in the UK. Every year, more than eight thousand boats pass through the harbour waters, helped by the hidden world of the men and women who keep it running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

This six-part observational documentary series tells their stories of life on a waterfront, pulsing with international trade and people, cargo, containers, the odd close call and not a little banter.
