About this show

Lifeboat is the extraordinary true tale of Bess Walder and Beth Cummings, who set sail on a ship from Liverpool to Canada in 1940 to escape the relentless bombing and dangers of war-torn Britain. Four days into the journey, their ship The City of Benares was torpedoed and sank. Bess and Beth spent nineteen terrifying hours in the water on an upturned lifeboat through a pounding storm, living to tell their story of survival and friendship.
