In the second of three co-productions between Radio Netherlands, BBC Radio Scotland and RTE Ireland, we travel to the coast of Wexford in Ireland to join the crew of the Kilmore Quay lifeboat service, often saving lives but sometimes having to be the bearers of bad news to the people of this small community of friends lost at sea. Reporter Meehall Holmes of RTE Ireland goes aboard the lifeboat to talk to the men and women who go beyond the all of duty.
