How do you describe what it’s like to encounter waves the size of buildings? How do you convey what that moment of rescue feels like? How do you tell the story of 200 years of lifesaving? With so many examples of courage, selflessness, heart-breaking loss and heartfelt relief in its long history, the RNLI has left it to those who know best. In 200 Voices you’ll hear from people whose lives have been touched by the charity. Not just crew members and casualties, but fundraisers, lifeguards, shore crew and shop workers, as well as those with more surprising connections. It takes many hands to save a life. And each day in the run-up to our birthday on 4 March, 2024, you'll hear a unique perspective. 200 Voices will transport you back in time, far out to sea and into the future. The first episode drops on 18 August.
