The BBC is Really Wild About Filming in Bali

BBC Children Series "Really Wild" Films a Coming Episode at Nusa Lembongan Island.


(9/9/2005)

Mola Mola. Nick Baker, Zoologist and presenter for the BBC children's long playing nature education series, "Really Wild," recently selected the Mola mola - a rare sunfish species know to frequent the waters off Nusa Lembongan as one of his celebrity creatures in the "Weirdest Creature Category."

Scubazoo, the company contracted to film underwater segments for the BBC, when faced with the challenge of filming these large but relatively reticent fishes, recommended Bali Hai Diving Adventures as the company most likely to deliver the desired results shooting underwater on a very tight schedule.

Arriving in Bali in August 2005, the BBC filming schedule provided for only three days to capture the Mola Mola on film.

The show's presenter, Nick Baker, diving with a full face Arga Unit and wired for sound, descended beneath the waters of Nusa Lembongan hoping to catch powerful photographic impressions to the world's heaviest bony fish. A gigantic fish by any standard, the Mola mola can grow to 3 meters in diameter and weigh as much as 363 kilograms – Nick Baker managed to encounter the fish on each and every of the ten dives made by the film team.

The BBC filming team credits their remarkable success at capturing the Mola mola on film to Bali Hai Diving's pioneering work in Mola mola behavioral research and the Bali-based company's uncompromising adherence to safety protocols on every dive they make.

In 2004, Bali Hai Diving Adventures, in association with Bali Hai Cruises, hosted a film shoot for a segment of "Planet Earth," the sequel to the BBC's "Blue Planet" series. That natural history sequence, filmed over ten days in the cool waters of Nusa Penida and Nusa Lembongan by celebrated Underwater Cinematographer Mr. Peter Scoones, will be broadcast sometime in 2006.

The "Really Wild" segment, just completed for the BBC. is expected to air on both the BBC and The Discovery Channel in the Spring of 2006.
