From some of Britain's police and ambulance emergency control rooms, Nick Knowles presents dramatic events from the day-to-day work of the emergency services on land, sea and in the air. Real Rescues also features real 999 calls, meets the people involved and the staff who answer them.

A huge wildfire tears through the ancient heathland of Ashdown forest, with people and buildings in its path. The RNLI life boat heads out to rescue two kayakers in danger of freezing off the Welsh coast, and a four-year-old dials 999 after Mum collapses, and looks after her baby sister as well. Show less
