Blue Planet episode 3 filmed on Rhyl Beach


The third installment of the hugely popular Blue Planet series will be set on Rhyl Beach, producers have revealed.

With guaranteed TV awards every year, the Attenborough-narrated visual wonder has proven to be the BBC’s jewel in the crown, but producers have admitted they’ve been running out of unique places to film.

“There isn’t a tropical island or hidden cove we haven’t explored now, so future episodes might be a little bit underwhelming”, admitted Location Director, Richard Edwards. “Two empty cans of Fosters and a floating Asda trolley isn’t quite as wondrous as two mating seahorses, but we’ve got no choice.”

He added: “Blue Planet might not be an appropriate name for the remaining few episodes, as technically it should Yellowy Brown Planet, which isn’t quite as catchy”.
