Sung by
June Tabor

Produced by

Brian Gulland for The First Composers Company Ltd.

The following is taken from:

'Spy Ship was a serial on BBC 2. A trawler went missing out of Hull called The Gaul and eventually she was found and it would seem that it had been sunk by a Russian submarine. The nets got caught. But then it seemed that there was something else going on and was it actually a Russian submarine that had sunk the trawler or was it a big cover-up? It was a fiction drama. This was a very compelling piece of drama writing. The plot was that a journalist had stumbled on that it might have been a British submarine. I don't know why I got asked to do it. I went to London on one of my brief excursions. The initial bit that was used on the screen was only a minute, a minute-and-a-half at most. It was when the BBC started releasing music for series, but it wasn't long enough for a single, so an extra chorus had to be written. The version here was what was released as a BBC single. On the B-side it was just the backing track.'
