Series 3: Episode 7



Every day in the seas around the UK and Ireland, an army of unpaid volunteers put their lives on the line to save those of others. This series tells the story of the ordinary men and women of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) who are ready to race to the rescue of those in trouble, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, whatever the weather. Using footage shot on the crews' own cameras, this series takes us into the heart of the action, capturing the unpredictable work of the RNLI in unique detail.\n\nLifeboat crews are trained to deal with all types of emergency at sea, but when the pagers go off the one thing they can be sure of is that they should expect the unexpected. On the north coast of Kent, new crew member Ruth is on board for one of her first ever shouts - a member of the public has spotted what looks like an upturned boat out at sea, the crew launch to investigate only for the call to turn into a race to save lives. Off the Essex coast, the crew of West Mersea station launch to reports of a life raft in the North Sea, but with no news of any sinking vessels in the area, where the raft and its sole occupant comes from remains a mystery. 10 miles along the coast at Clacton the crew get a call in the middle of the night to look for two people in the sea, but arriving on the scene in the darkness a very different rescue unfolds in front of them.
