Preview – Humpback Whales: A Detective Story

Humpback Whales

After almost dying at the hands – or rather fins – of a humpback whale three years ago, film-maker Tom Mustill returns to Californian waters in the latest instalment of BBC Two’s Natural World series.

After being crushed by a humpback whale in 2015, Tom travels back stateside to investigate whether the creatures really are the gentle giants that they’re thought to be. Along the way, Tom meets others who have survived similar encounters and the experts who know the seafaring giants best.
