WAM jULY 14-15 Peter Walsh

A new documentary is bringing to life a story that's part of the fabric of this place.

The Portguese fishermen and the White fleet on which they sailed into St. John's.

For hundreds of years the Portuguese fished the Grand Banks.

Often taking shelter from storms and gales in a welcoming port.

Now that story is being brought to life with one of the last remaining ships in the White Fleet - the Santa Maria Manuela.

Peter Walsh's film, "Return of the White Fleet" airs next week on CBC Television in Newfoundland and Labrador.

I asked Peter into our studio to tell me about it.
