On Saturday 19 December 1981, the Penlee lifeboat Solomon Browne was launched in hurricane conditions to go to the aid of the coaster Union Star, which was being swept towards the southern coast of Cornwall. What followed ranks not only with the greatest acts of courage in the history of the RNLI, but with any human achievement.

Written by screenwriter and playwright Frazer Flintham, adapted from Penlee RNLI volunteer and author Michael Sagar-Fenton’s 1991 book Penlee, Into The Night is directed by Alastair Whatley and produced by the team behind Birdsong Online and Apollo 13.
