Oceans UK – Following the success of the BBC Two series, Oceans, presenters Paul Rose and Tooni Mahto, are joined by marine archaeologist Frank Pope to take on an ocean closer to home, the Atlantic.
The common perception is that the British seas are dark, cold, and dirty, but the reality is very different.
Oceans UK shows that Britain’s native waters can be every bit as dramatic, colourful, and surprising as the oceans anywhere else in the world and provide a home to extraordinary creatures, spectacular seascapes, underwater cities and a source of food.
Featuring scientists and their latest research, the series will examine the threats facing British waters and reveal the steps that are being taken to protect them.
