Meet The Open University academic team who worked on the BBC/OU co-production of the award winning Blue Planet II. SOLD OUT

Using breakthroughs in marine science and cutting-edge technologies, this landmark seven-part series brought viewers face to face with compelling stories from our Earth’s incredible oceans.

This fascinating public talk uses video footage from the TV series and covers the science of our oceans, the experience of the production process, and how science and discovery were the driving forces behind Blue Planet II.

The OU team giving the talk will be Professor Mark Brandon, Dr Phillip Sexton, Dr Miranda Dyson and Dr Pallavi Anand. It will be chaired by Professor Iain Stewart, President of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.

After the talk, there will be an opportunity to ask questions, and to engage in an interactive debate.   

This will be a hugely popular event, and you are advised to book your place as soon as possible. This talk is recommended for age 14+.

Tickets are available for purchase through Dynamic Earth. Price: £5.00 and free for students with valid ID (such as a TOTUM/NUS card). 

This event is accompanied by a drop-in, free-of-charge OU Science Showcase exhibition at Dynamic Earth, with interactive activities for all, running 15-16 October 2019, 10:00-16:00.
