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?
