Across the Weekend
The Sperm Whale, the Octopus, Giant Squid and eerie green and blue lights of the underwater world await, in hands-on science, an array of unique ocean artefacts and hugely entertaining presentations from Dr Russell Arnott and team at the Incredible Oceans Dome. After dark we use silent disco headphones to transport you to a deep sea world of ocean ambience, underwater sounds, ocean science poetry and recordings of deep sea explorers talking about their experiences.
With live appearances on Sky News, Deep Ocean Live, the Channel 5 Saturday Show, and EuroNews, Russell is a marine biologist, physicist and oceanographer who has appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Natural Histories speaking about his favourite animal; the octopus. He is a regular at science and music festivals across Europe and has presented alongside speakers as varied as Russell Brand and Jim Al-Khalili.
