If you thought this was some extreme Channel 4 spin off of Geordie Shore, you'd be mistaken. However, don't think producers didn't consider that when choosing the title. This two-part documentary series follows the independent Blyth All-Weather Lifeboat through a stormy six months on land and at sea. It's a warm-hearted look at a tight-knit community bound together by a shared devotion to their lifeboat and a determination to keep it afloat. Armed with mountains of paperwork, chairman Barry sets about shaking up the lifeboat organisation with gusto but he faces increasing resistance from the volunteers who think he is undermining everything they have built up together.
