Blue Planet Live - Liz Bonnin and Steve Backshall on BBC One this Sunday

Screen Shot 2019-03-21 at 17.01.55.png

Steve Backshall, Liz Bonnin and Chris Packham kick off an exciting new live series to explore the health of our oceans and its wildlife, broadcasting thousands of miles from across the planet to find out how marine life is coping in the face of increasing environmental pressure.

Over in the Bahamas, Steve will be in shark heaven as he drops anchor to take the plunge live with some enormous ocean predators. An encounter with the impressive tigershark offers some clues to the success of their species. 

On the fragile Great Barrier Reef, Liz sets up base at a research station where state-of-the-art coral experiments try to find solutions to ensure the Reef’s survival in the face of environmental threats. This is a prime moment to meet the colourful characters that live on the delicate coral and the perfect time to follow the trials and tribulations of new-born turtles living on the island.

The Chimpanzee & Me - Prof Ben Garrod

For over a decade, Ben Garrod has studied chimpanzees to find ways to protect and conserve them. We join Ben on a journey that has taken him around the world, studying eastern chimps in the humid forests of Uganda and the critically endangered western chimps of Liberia.  In his trademark infectious, lighthearted style, Ben describes encounters with chimpanzees that highlight the different threats they face. From the illegal international pet trade, to bushmeat markets, and the effects of relentless habitat loss – not to mention how your new furniture, your toothpaste and even your mobile phone are all implicated in their falling numbers.  With access to world-renowned primatologist Dr Jane Goodall, Ben shows how we can protect the chimps of the future and help conserve this endlessly fascinating species.
