Great previews for Killer Whales

Posted on: August 31st, 2011

Big Wave’s latest documentary airs tonight on BBC 2 at 8:00pm.

THE WOMAN WHO SWIMS WITH KILLER WHALES was pick of the day in the weekend’s Radio Times, Guardian Guide and Sunday Time Culture magazines.

‘Eight yards long, six tons in weight and with gnashers to match, the orca, or killer whale, would deter most swimmers from taking a dip, but to the New Zealand conservationist Ingrid Visser they are her bread and butter. Mark Woodward’s absorbing and touching film follows her alternately playful and serious relationships with these magnificent yet endangered creatures. Being top of the food chain, it emerges, has disadvantages in respect of pollutant ingestion.’ Sunday Times Culture Magazine Pick of the day 29th Aug 2011

The film has also featured in this month’s Radio Times and on Radio 4 ‘s Woman’s Hour. You can listen again here…. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b013q20f
