Sky is to broadcast the first live TV news bulletins from under the sea to draw attention to the plight of the world's oceans, Oliver Needs, submersible pilot explains why ...
The deep ocean - beneath 200m (656ft) - is the beating heart of our planet and its largest and most vital ecosystem, yet we don't fully understand how it functions or how healthy it is.

"The deep ocean is the final frontier. It's the largest wilderness on our planet and a place we have only just begun to explore. The deeper we go, the more astonishing the life-forms we find" Sir David Attenborough
