Hey all. Couldn't find an existing topic, so here goes:

There was a show on tonight over here called Ocean Oddysea about the journey of a young sperm whale. It continues next week.

Anyhoo, just to say that there was a few very nice sequences revolving around the hunting of an Archie by the whale (it was only CG though...) and the abyssal landscapes are quite spimple breathtakingly recreated; quite a lot more impressive than I ever considered them! Just though I should give everyone a heads up, for those who either missed it or haven't had the chance to see it yet. Couldn't find anything on the site, else I'd post a link. Hoo, well.

Dagnabbit! By Beelzebub's hoary backside!

I utterly forgot to set the video! I went to work with this vague feeling that I should have set the video for something, but, having just got home, utterly forgot this was on. I am utterly disgusted with myself about this, even more than normal! I do hope TONMO member Nik of Impossible Productions will contribute some feedback as he was involved in the programme, and this very website was used as a resource in the research to the production.

Pardon a swear word but....bollocks! ... I hope this is repeated.

... you'll have missed us then; we've a wee cameo in there. That'll learn you Phil!

It's a 2-parter isn't it?

Arrrgh! Gutted and hung up to smoke!

The second part is next Wednesday (31st).

I can't believe I forgot about this! There are no repeats scheduled yet, but keep an eye on BBC Four UK Cephfans it's bound to be repeated.

Here's a wee blurb about the show. I'm interested to hear from anyone who saw it.

Don't miss the next show next week (part 2)!

will it be shown in the U.S?

I looked for it on the bbcamerica web site a few days ago, but couldn't find it... I hope it shows up somewhere, though... PBS?

Ta Matt; I've an entire disc with all of my pics on it, but I can't remember where I put it (and as I never downloaded them I've not seen them myself). I'll have a small screening here next week, assuming the copies arrive by then.

Nik seems to have gone rather quiet ... you still with us Nik?

I spotted Uncle Steve on part one but then went & missed part two ! So same comment as Phil. Good prog. plenty of squid action & the whales weren't given names like "Spotty" or "Notch in fin from Orca punch-up" which is SO duff.

Graeme,

The DVD is out in the UK on the 7th August with a 'Making Of' programme. Hopefully Steve and Matt will appear in the bonus feature.
