I've been hearing about the new BBC series on the oceans for the past few weeks as it's taken center stage on www.soton.ac.uk. Tonight was the first episode. Sadly I was not that impressed. It seemed so poorly put together with very little actually said and much of the content tenuous at least - why did they investigate a wreck to learn about Asian slavery when the ship had been sunk deliberately to form an artificial reef?
It was dumbing down at it's worst. Not a BBC Bristol classic and not a good showcase for Southampton as a leading research institute. Bring back Attenborough.
