Adventurers guide to Britain

Not a life jacket in sight as they sit on the tubes of a rib at speed

Has that link got anything to do with your post because I can't see what you mean.

That has 'lifeboat' written all over it.

Maybe they could combine seaside rescue and their programme together!

I'm not saying I haven't been out without a life jacket before but I'm guessing for them to use the boat for the tv filming it would have been coded and a commercial operation.

Ah well, each to their own!

Here (Irish Republic) that WOULD be illegal. I understand that this is not the case in the UK. Personally, I'd let them get on with it. Plenty more pretty/hunky presenters in the queue. They could name some worthy Charity Event in their honour.

I'm sure they'll be OK though guys - they have to be on again next week.

Missed it, but....

We priced for that gig....but were unsuccesful......

Obviously should have left out safety equipment costs

Interesting for ITV , as we have done some BBC support and they insist on knowing about what safety equipment is carried, what lifejackets are issued and also they want to read terms and conditions and safety policy/ risk assessments. They would not book unless we gave all these over to them.

I meant what was described sounded like the kind of irresponsible scenario that could end up requiring the services of the RNLI.
