A chance discovery of a bronze commemoration plaque to Eighteenth century lifeboat pioneer Lionel Lukin alongside a village pond in Dunmow, Essex, aroused author John Glasscocks interest.

For how was it that someone living in Dumnow in the heart of the Essex countryside and miles from the sea came to have a vital part to play in the invention and development of the Lifeboat as we know it today?

As John Glascock reveals in this drama-documentary, there were three main rivals after the claim of inventor of the lifeboat, and the building of the first lifeboats had come about only after an eighteenth century tale of dubious dealing and heavy political skullduggery in smoke filled rooms.
