'The Channel: Lost at Sea' will tell the stories of those who have gone missing while making the crossing by small boat from France to the UK.

We will look at who they are, why they boarded dinghies and what happened to them, tracking their last known steps and speaking to their loved ones who are still waiting for answers, months and sometimes years later.
