BBC’s Pacific dive special
Tune in to BBC1 on 17 August for the first of a three-strong series in which presenters Kate Humble and Mike deGruy (pictured) dive great sites in the Pacific.
The first programme, which runs from 8pm, covers the WW2 shipwrecks of Truk Lagoon. After her first dive in the area, Humble said: “If every dive is even a quarter as good as this one, we’re going to have a very, very exciting month.”
The series was commissioned by the BBC’s Natural History Unit and was shot using a 30-strong team of divers, biologists and cameramen.
The expedition, says the BBC, “undertook some of the deepest and most dangerous diving ever attempted by a TV crew”.
Mike deGruy is set to appear at the Dive 2008 Show at the NEC, Birmingham on 1 and 2 November.
