Southend Lifeboat Station becomes 5th venue for Lifeboats.TV

On the 6th and 7th of March 2002 the Ultralab digital creativity team were based on the Southend Pier for the Lifeboats.TV project.
All the research conducted so far on this project has been done in conjunction with young people, exploring how creative use of technology could be used to enhance their learning, bringing the RNLI bang up to date with its uses of technology at the same time.
Southend Lifeboat Station became the fifth location for the Lifeboats.TV crew. The lifeboat station is based at the end of a pier and Matthew Eaves and Richard Millwood commented as they walked the mile pier journey that this was their strangest journey to work.
The crew were excellent and lots of footage was captured at this location, all in aid of the RNLI’s new Lifeboats.TV site, a way for the RNLI to reach its young audience using creative technologies.
