The Catch that Nobody Wants (1973)


In 1973, ICPC produced its first video titled: "The Catch that Nobody Wants." It depicts the dilemma of a trawler skipper who finds his fishing gear entangled with a subsea cable. The film dramatises the consequences and some of the hazards the cableship’s crew have to face and prepare in order to restore the cable back into service. The film gained three awards at different trade film festivals.

As renewable energy generation moves offshore, there is an increasing focus on the submarine power cables that carry "green" energy to onshore regional power grids. This is especially the case for the rapidly expanding offshore wind turbine farms. Ocean Currents is a new documentary, commissioned by the ICPC, to provide an informative overview of submarine power cables from their beginnings in the 19th century to the modern day when they are now an integral part of the global energy supply.
