BLUE PLANET II

Favourite Fac­tual Show

TV Times - - Tv Times Awards 2018 -

BBC1’S Blue Planet II, nar­rated by Sir David At­ten­bor­ough, gave us an ex­tra­or­di­nary glimpse at some won­der­ful marine wildlife as well as de­liv­er­ing a vi­tal pol­icy-chang­ing message about the dam­age caused by plas­tic waste in our oceans.

‘We prom­ise our au­di­ence the ex­treme close-up of wildlife; we know it thrills them – it thrills us, too – and we are de­lighted Blue

Planet II has been awarded Favourite Fac­tual Show,’ says Ju­lian Hec­tor, head of the BBC’S Nat­u­ral His­tory Unit, pic­tured with the award. ‘The view of the crea­tures hid­den by the waves in Blue Planet II not only al­lows us to tell sto­ries of their re­mark­able lives, it also gives us the op­por­tu­nity to speak of their fragility as more hu­man pres­sure is placed upon our one ocean.’
