SHOWING TIMES
Sundays at 0630 GMT
Repeated: Mondays at 2030, Tuesdays at 1030, Wednesdays at 1530 and Thursdays at 0230 (Not Asia Pacific, Middle East or South Asia) & 0830 GMT

Just a short piece by John McIntyre. I won't catch it, as I can't get BBC World in the UK, but apparently he's used a bit of an interview with me- fame at last
:D

And he's used some of my underwater footage - e.g the night-time stuff.

For anyone interested here are a couple of stills from the trip:

A load more stills up on: http://www.pbase.com...ora/whalesharks

Anyway, hope some of you can catch it. I'm guaranteed to come across like a complete moron on TV (as in real life).

Cheers

Congrats! Wish I could see it. I am currently pseudo-homeless and have had no TV for a long time.

When is BBC going to provide streaming content?!

Just heard, for those in the UK, they're also planning on slotting in a shortened version at some point tomorrow morning on breakfast news on BBC1, and on news24. Could be any time from 6am to 930am, though.....

The FastTrack episode is up on line:
http://news.bbc.co.u...3...505&bbcws=1

quite low res, and obviously looks better if you select the higher quality in preferences. My 3 seconds of fame is right near the end.

Would highly recommend the trip if anyone fancies a great week with whale sharks.

I saw it while we were in Rome at the weekend and you came across great Fergus! Djibouti certainly keeps looking better and better for Whale Shark viewing. :)

Cheers, Simon
