Wild Arabia – BBC Two

Wild Arabia – BBC Two

The Five Oceans conservation team were joined on numerous field trips during 2012 by the BBC Natural History Unit as they embarked on filming for Wild Arabia, a three-part documentary series on the nature, wildlife and people of the Arabian peninsula. The series aired to great acclaim in the first quarter of 2013. The Five Oceans team featured most in the second one-hour documentary in the series which showcased the marine life of Oman. Among the top stories was the tale of the rare Arabian Sea humpback whale, which also featured on the front page of BBC Nature (http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/21592348).

The Five Oceans team were heavily involved in research for the series, as well as guiding camera teams in the field and finally helping to develop elements of the script. All of it was accomplished whilst continuing the actual research thanks to a very accommodating and patient BBC team!
