Live BBC Interview Interrupted by Blue Whale

BBC Big Blue Live presenter Steve Backshall's interview with whale expert Doris Welch was interrupted when the film crew spotted a blue whale nearby

The team was filming in Moss Landing, California when the mammal made its appearance. 

Backshall, who is informed by his helicopter team via his headset, cuts off Welch to announce the incident.

'I've heard word that we have on our helicopter - a blue whale!' he exclaims live on television before apologising to Welch for the interruption.
