Subject: The cold wind blew over the sea

Hi,
when I was in my mid teens, about twenty years ago, there was a series, I think a BBC series, on television. It was about a small village in I think Scotland, about fishing men and an insurance fraud which included sabotage on ships and drowning crew.

The tune for this series however was even more beautiful than the series itself and I even taped it. I lost this tape ages ago, but still can remember part of the lyrics:
The cold wind blew over the sea
The cold wind blew over the icy sea
And it took good men
Good fishing men
From their wives and families.

Now there's sorrow and grief,
there's anger in the town,
...
That's what's left of it in my memory and even this might not be correct.

The question is: what was the name of this series, who sang the song, and what are the full lyrics? I once asked Niamh Parsons whether she sang this song but she said she didn't, but it's that kind of voice.

Thanks in advance!

The serie you´re referring to is "The submarine" We also sew it in sweden and here they called it "Ubåten". The last thing i remember of it was a car explosion there two ppl inside of it was killed.

was just listening to the song on my pc when inspiration grabbed me to find out the title which i'd forgotten, and i happened on this thread.

i have both sides of the 7" single saved on my pc. quality isn't brilliant but is more than serviceable. Here are the lyrics as i can make them out. The only thing i'm unsure of is the name of the ship.

'the cold wind blew over the sea
the cold hand reached out over the icy sea
and it took good men, good fishermen
from their wives and families

now there's sorrow and grief
there's anger in the town
from this whole mystery

Remember when the wind blows cold
the good men of the Kaystars?
the fishermen who went to sea
who found a secret war'


i can convert the tracks to mp3 if anyone is interested.
hope i've been of some help
cheers

Well if anyone is still interested
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0142054/soundtrack
claims to have it.
I did not want to put the required software on this amchine (there is a free trial) so I cant confirm it works or is the right track. Seems to be though.
