First edition (publ. Michael Joseph)

Ennal's Point is a novel by Alun Richards, first published in 1977.[1]

The story concerns the crew of a south Wales lifeboat, loosely modelled on the Swansea-based Mumbles lifeboat.

In 1982, the novel was adapted by BBC Wales for the BBC2 network and starred Philip Madoc as lifeboat coxswain Jack Tustin, with a crew that included Glyn Owen. Veteran actress Rachel Thomas also appeared in the series, which used an instrumental segment of Hazel O'Connor's hit, "Will You?", as its theme.
