    It was about a couple of reefs in Spain and the channel islands, was a bit short for any in depth info, but was interesting to see coral growing in 18 degree water, mainlt softies.

    Hi Mekaeel - I did a bit of "community service" work, and assisted in a project to help cleanup the small craft harbor in Simonstown.... Unfortunately I was a LITTLE bit busy collecting garbage to carry a camera with me as well :)
    And yes - I spent a little under an hour underwater collecting garbage :)

    Did anybody see the footage on Nat G, about the octopus. The octopus outgrew it's tank or something so they put it in the shark tank. They thought it's camouflage would protect it from the sharks. In the mornings they found dead sharks in the tank, so the did some filming at night and found the octopus was catching the sharks.

    The problem with the program is it was a travel program out of 30 minutes you saw about 5 min.of the actual 2 reefs.

    Agree with Warren. It said Coral reef etc but showed basically less than a Wimpy advert
