The BBC Natural History Unit is producing a major new documentary
series called 'The Blue Planet', 8 x 50-minute programmes about the
natural history of the world's oceans, encompassing a breadth and
depth (quite literally!) of habitats, e.g coral reefs, rocky shores,
mangroves, temperate waters, open ocean, polar seas and the deep.
We are keen to find highly visual stories to present in this series and
would very much like to hear from you if you have any
interesting/unusual/spectacular behaviours and/or locations that you
feel would be worthwhile including - from the size of zooxanthellae up
to humpbacks at Silver Banks!
It would be particularly useful if you were able to include
information on any of the following points:
1. Is there any visual material of this story in existence, either in
the form of stills or video footage?
2. Is there any good reference material (review articles, books etc.)
dealing with the subject, especially those with accompanying photographs?
3. Can you suggest anybody (perhaps yourself?!) whom we could contact
regarding the practicalities and feasibility of filming this subject?
We hope that with your help we can ensure that 'The Blue Planet' will
be a hallmark series of which both the BBC and the scientific
community can be proud. Any help that you can give us would be very
I'd also be very grateful for information about any forthcoming
conferences on anything marine, which may be helpful.
Finally, apologies to those of you reading this whom I've already
spoken to in Panama! (and many thanks again for your kind help).
With many thanks for any help that you can give me,
