BBC Worldwide takes 'Blue Planet' to a bigger scale in 2008

MUMBAI: BBC Worldwide has announced that the road show The Blue Planet Live! which is based on the BBC documentary The Blue Planet, returns to the UK on a bigger scale in April 2008.

The performances allow fans to enter the dramatic underwater world of the oceans with a two-hour edit of the scenes from the programme.

These scenes will be projected onto large screens with performances in several venues including London Wembley Arena.

Alistair Fothergill who produced the TV show says, "In creating The Blue Planet I wanted to take the viewers on a journey to a place that they had never been before, and to be emotionally moved by it. I am delighted that World Class Service has teamed up with BBC Worldwide to produce the live events in 2008 which capture the original spirit of the BBC television series. From the creatures of the deep to the awesome blue whale The Blue Planet Live! puts the audience in a moving and dramatic world at an immense scale."

The BBC adds that the tour is an opportunity for audiences to see these sequences synchronised with George Fenton's music score for which he won a Bafta. Fenton says, "The Blue Planet Live! offers a unique and emotional ride, experiencing the story of life beneath the oceans on a theatrical scale. The show is presented in a way that heightens the drama, the fascination and, ultimately, the awareness and I very much look forward to the opportunity of taking the show to new audiences in the UK."

One of the BBC Natural History Unit's most successful brands of the last 20 years, The Blue Planet TV show was created in 2001 and has been sold to more than 140 countries, winning countless awards.

To help reduce the environmental impacts of the show, customers can choose to use Ticketmasters innovative new ticketing solution MobileTicket for shows at Manchester Central and Wembley Arena which allows ticket buyers to receive their event tickets directly to their registered mobile phone as a unique barcode that is valid for entry to the event without requiring any paper.
