The Unthanks celebrate Tyneside shipbuilding heritage

The region's long shipbuilding heritage will be celebrated with a special event in Newcastle this weekend.

Just back from a tour of Australia, North East folk band The Unthanks, will be on stage at the Tyneside Cinema on Sunday night.

They'll sing a live soundtrack to archive footage of workers on the Tyne, the Tees and the Wear.

BBC Look North's Jeff Brown reports.
