The UK’s most watched TV show for 2017 – Blue Planet II – premiers in Australia today. It will be broadcast on Channel Nine at 19.00.

A remarkable series that has moved us to action and is leaving an indelible mark on our world

Former OWUSS Rolex Australasian scholar Yolly Bosigner is a researcher at the BBC Natural History Unit. The Queensland native stated that 14 stories in the series was filmed in Australia.

I am so incredibly proud to have grown up in a country which as such awesome marine life and I personally hope we recognise just how lucky we are and look after it!

Probably the most incredible spectacle I have seen underwater was the marauding aggregations of spider crabs.

Thank you to all of my Aussie friends who helped provide thoughts and ideas over the last four years. It has been a huge team effort.”

Blue Planet II took four years to make, and the team behind it went on 125 expeditions to 39 countries. They spent over 6,000 hours underwater filming on every continent and across every ocean.

Last month the series narrator – Sir David Attenborough – collected a special ‘Impact Award‘ for Blue Planet II on behalf of the BBC Natural History Unit, for highlighting the overwhelming global problem we have with plastic pollution.
