LIFESAVERS from a Dorset lifeboat station will feature on popular BBC TV series Saving Lives At Sea.

Volunteers at Swanage Lifeboat Station will tell the story of Alex, who fell 90ft from the top of Old Harry Rocks this year.

Now in its sixth series, the 10-part documentary showcases the lifesaving work of the RNLI’s volunteer lifeboat crews and lifeguards from around the UK and Ireland. The series will air on BBC Two on Tuesdays at 8pm.

On August 31, the episode will document Alex, who fell from Old Harry Rocks whilst walking with friends and miraculously survived.

Becky Mack, one of the Helms of the Swanage lifeboat crew featured in the forthcoming episode, says: “It’s great that we can showcase the lifesaving work of RNLI volunteers in a TV programme 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 do with our supporters from the comfort of their own home.”
