Jolly exciting stuff Tony ... but there's that reference to 20m (60 foot) long giant squid yet again......right in their intro. Maybe I should just use this figure myself when giving talks etc ... it sounds far more impressive than the truth.
Any way of contacting them and getting them to correct it to 13m (~ 40 feet)? Details coming from the BM should be as accurate as possible.
.....I'm off to topple most ungraciously from the roof ......
I just finished watching the broadcast! Amazing to be able to view it live!!!
I also found it amazing they can store sperm for such a long time! Explains why some have fertile eggs while not being near a partner! Also I never realized how quickly they can rejuvinate limbs!
No, I don't have any such statistics... but I am glad that at least a couple of you tuned in! Do tell us more about what was covered. How long was it? I think I tried to jump in about 45 minutes later but it was already done. Does that sound right?
