The crew of the St Agnes RNLI lifeboat arrive on a TV screen near you as they star in a popular TV documentary series.

The team of volunteers will hit the small screen tonight as they appear in the latest episode of the BBC’s Saving Lives at Sea.

Real life rescue footage captured on their helmet cameras gives a frontline view of how the association’s rescuers risk their own lives as they come to the aid of those in danger at sea and work to save everybody.

Now in its sixth series, the 10-part documentary features the rescue work of RNLI crews and volunteer rescuers from the UK and Ireland.

Real life-saving footage is accompanied by moving interviews with the crews and volunteer rescuers of the lifeboats alongside the people they rescue and their families.

Tonight’s episode (Tuesday, September 28) sees St Agnes RNLI saving the lives of two young men at sea off St. Agnes Head, alongside rescue stories from their colleagues at other resorts and beaches around our coasts.

Richard Draisey, crew chief of the St Agnes lifeboat featured in the next episode, said:

“It’s great that we can showcase the rescue work of RNLI volunteers on a TV show like this. Without the generous support and donations from the public, we wouldn’t be able to save lives at sea and it’s great to be able to share what we’re doing with our supporters in the comfort of their own home. “

In 2020, RNLI lifeboat crews in the UK and Ireland helped 8,374 people, saving 239 lives, while association rescuers helped 25,172 people and saved 110 lives on some of the beaches busiest in the UK.

Saving Lives at Sea is Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on BBC Two.
