Summary

Documentary exploring the hard-working culture that existed in the Clyde shipyards, which were responsible for making the Queen Mary and QE2, despite poor working conditions and industrial relations. The programme examines how the employees' work ethic and strength of public support led them to defy the then-government's efforts to close the factories down in 1971.
