I'm probably (no, I am ) very biased but I thought the BBC coverage of the TRT work was more engrossing than the BBC2 programme 'Oceans' broadcast this evening. And, even if that is a somewhat minority view, I imagine that many will think the first 'Oceans' programme to be pretty lightweight! Lots of giggly fun and I'd have been really happy to be joining-in , but, what was it actually trying to achieve? One whale gives a breath sample and it wasn't even driving! I suppose that after the major success of 'Blue Planet' and 'Coast' I have come to expect a lot! I'll be watching the reviews with interest!
I'm hoping that there will be more substance in future episodes. It's becoming quite tiresome in diving programmes to have the participants keep telling us how dangerous it all is and how worried they become when the comms fail. Comms failure? We don't even have comms to start with!
Come on MDers , get those HSE Scuba Diver quals and get out there on those expeditions!
