Coastguard is back! Missed the action? You can still catch up on demand

Our hit Channel 5 documentary series Coastguard: Search and Rescue SOS returned to TV screens in April 2024 with an eagerly anticipated second series. 

Viewers watched nail-biting rescues from HM Coastguard, compelling investigations and the vital work of marine surveyors as we followed all the behind-the-scenes action from the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).  

If you missed any of the series you can still catch up and see first-hand the lifesaving work carried out across the MCA to keep you safe on the coast and at sea.

Head over to My5 to watch all the episodes from series one and two.
