Episode seven OUR BLUE PLANET

TV & Satellite Week - - This Week On Tv -

THE SOBER­ING FI­NALE brings to light the hu­man threat to our oceans –like the eight mil­lion tonnes of plas­tic that ends up in the seas ev­ery year.

‘Tragedies hap­pen be­cause of plas­tic,’ says At­ten­bor­ough. ‘We see al­ba­trosses gath­er­ing food for their young, and what comes out for the chick, you think it is go­ing to be squid, but it’s plas­tic so the chick starves. I hope there will be sci­en­tific ad­vances that help us to de­stroy plas­tic without any side ef­fects.’
