Action! Second series of Maritime and Coastguard Agency documentary

The cameras are back for the return of the nailbiting Channel 5 TV series, Coastguard. 

After more than 5-million people tuned in to watch the first series of the fly-on-the-wall documentary about the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, a second outing has been commissioned. 

Film crews will be working over the coming months to capture the dramatic challenges facing the teams who keep people safe at sea and along our coast: from Coastguard Rescue Teams, maritime rescue coordination centres and helicopter crews to marine surveyors and investigations teams. 

The six-part Series 2 is scheduled to air in 2024.
