dww bpi title 1000

Buoyed by the success of 2017’s Blue Planet II, this March sees a new Blue Planet Live series arrive on BBC One. Hosted by Chris Packham, Steve Backshall and Liz Bonnin and coming live from the Bahamas, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and the USA’s east coast, the week-long show will take viewers to the depths of the world’s oceans bringing them closer to the marine world than ever before. For those inspired by the show, specialist operator Dive Worldwide offers trips to the Bahamas and Australia, where divers can see the sharks and colourful reefs featured in the programme.
