A world without seafarers [VIDEO]

Ever wonder what the world would be like without seafarers?  In a nutshell, it wouldn’t be pretty.

The following video was produced by the Seafarers UK, a charity that helps seafarers, ex-seafarers and their families, and gives us a look at what the world, or at least the UK, would be like if the world’s seafarers just up and vanished.

Commissioned by Seafarers UK for Seafarers Awareness Week (6-12 June), ‘The Vanished’ video is intended to shock viewers into understanding how dependent the UK is on ships and seafarers to supply essential food, fuel and goods.
