One of the best drama series I'd seen on TV
I was fortunate enough to catch this series on TV Ontario, the Canadian public broadcast channel, in 1998. My sister had originally seen it on its first run in 1994 and told me about it. Yes, some of the stories about the characters' lives were leaning toward soap opera but that is to be expected in many series. However, the show came to life when they launched the Lifeboat. This show had one of the most haunting song/scores I had ever heard. It fit the action of launching the lifeboat into an ever dangerous, rough, cold sea so perfectly. Suddenly you would forget some of the tawdry or tense goings-on among the characters and follow the real hero/main character of this show - The Lifeboat itself as it went down to the sea to complete its mission(s) for which it was built.
