The action-packed world of HM Coastguard is returning to your screens next week, this time part of a dramatic documentary series on emergency services and rescues.  

SOS Extreme Rescues follows the work of emergency services and volunteer organisations responding to emergencies, taking place in the stunning, wild landscape of Eryri, more commonly known as Snowdonia.

As part of this new BBC2 series, viewers can follow the Coastguard and partner agencies across miles of Welsh mountains, forests and coastline, as teams respond to dangerous call outs and those in urgent need.

From rescuing an injured power-kiter on a Wales beach to an injured walker on Twll Du (Devil’s Kitchen), look out for HM Coastguard across the series, with teams from Abersoch, Barmouth and Criccieth, along with the helicopter crews from Caernarfon, featured.

North Wales Police and the RNLI are just some of the agencies the Coastguard works with on a regular basis, also highlighted in this new series. 

Watch the first episode of SOS Extreme Rescues on BBC 2, Monday 8 January at 7pm. In Wales you can watch SOS Extreme Rescues on BBC One Wales at the same time. The entire series will be available on iPlayer after the broadcast of the first episode. 

This isn’t the first time the important work of HM Coastguard has been shown on TV. Last summer Coastguard – a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the Maritime and Coastguard Agency - was aired, and following its success a second series is coming out later this year.
