RNLI VOLUNTEERS from Poole will feature in the next episode of Saving Lives at Sea.

To mark the 200th anniversary of the RNLI, the volunteer lifeboat crew at Poole RNLI is featured in the popular nautical show.

The upcoming episode deals with a man who has fallen into Poole Quay in the middle of the night alongside rescue stories from colleagues at other stations and beaches across the Dorset coast.

Saving Lives at Sea is now in its ninth season and features the heroic lifesaving work of RNLI lifeboat crews across the UK and Ireland.

Suzie Jupp, Poole RNLI volunteer who features in the forthcoming episode, said: “It’s great to be able to showcase the work we do on TV like this and allow the public to see how their generous donations help us to save lives.

The production of the Dorset episode took place over the past year, with lifeboat crews and lifeguards using special cameras and welcoming filmmakers into their day-to-day lives.

Rescues from the RNLI’s archives are also revisited, and we get a glimpse into the everyday lives of the thousands of men and women who give up their time to save lives.

Viewers can watch the episode featuring the Poole RNLI volunteers on March 26 at 8pm on BBC Two and Iplayer.
