We are beyond excited that our Centre of Ocean Excellence, the National Marine Aquarium, has a documentary series ‘Secrets of the Aquarium’ coming to BBC2 from Tuesday 14th November at 8pm!

The National Marine Aquarium is the Ocean Conservation Trust’s window to the Ocean and is an essential element in the delivery of all of our conservation work. Secrets of The Aquarium will take viewers on an extraordinary journey behind the scenes, offering a unique glimpse into the captivating world of marine life.

With breath-taking cinematography and exclusive access to the inner workings of the NMA, the series will showcase the incredible diversity of the marine species who make the National Marine Aquarium their home. You will be introduced to our dedicated team of experts, scientists and marine biologists who work tirelessly to ensure the well-being of our resident sea creatures while engaging in vital conservation efforts to make our vision of a healthy, thriving Ocean, a reality, through our three Ocean programmes.

The 6-part documentary series is narrated by Joanna Scanlan (Thick of It, Getting On, Notes on a Scandal, In the Loop) and will feature fascinating stories of looking after animals and our conservation efforts. These stories include rehoming a turtle from the Maldives, the unforeseen problems of seagrass restoration, connecting people in local care homes with the sea, and launching a miniboat to cross the Atlantic collecting vital Ocean data. These stories highlight the profound impact of the National Marine Aquarium and the Ocean Conservation Trust, showcasing our commitment to restoring and protecting the Ocean.
