If you live on the rugged Pembrokeshire coast, there are four emergency services: police, fire, ambulance and lifeboat.
Thus when Lynda La Plante was pondering a new action-packed drama, her thoughts turned to the RNLI. " was astonished at how many lives are saved - over a thousand a year," says the author of Prime Suspect and Civvies. "That's a hell of an amount of drama at sea."
This new nine-part series centres on the fictional lifeboat station of Penrhys, where the volunteers forget their troubled on-shore lives as each maritime crisis unfolds. In the first episode, Troubled Waters, the crew waits to hear if they will be awarded a new boat, and three youngsters sail off into danger.

Maurice Ward is a Hartlepool hairdresser. He is also the inventor of a substance that can withstand any amount of heat, while remaining cool. The implications for science and industry are limitless.
Ward, his wife and his daughter know the formula, and he is well aware of the value of his invention, which has been christened Starlite. This means that he is also extremely cagey about revealing anything that might compromise his control over it. In turn, this makes it impossible for Starlite to be independently tested, patented or exploited.
QED follows Ward on a trip to talk to scientists at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in the USA, who realise the implications of Starlite for space travel. Ward is willing to wait for the right deal - how many millions should tempt him to sign away the secret?
