An educational film focussing on the work of the North Foreland coastal radio station, Kent. Through the use of fictional scenarios, the film demonstrates how radio communications with shipping operate and how the coastal radio stations, HM Coastguard, RNLI and RAF communicates when coordinating a rescue at sea.
The film opens with shots of a lighthouse and a soundtrack of radio broadcasts made between shipping and North Foreland Coastal Station. A relief map shows the locations of other coastal radio stations.
