Not to Be Missed: WATCH #BlackfishOnBBC4
Blackfish has been making waves around the world. Since we first blogged about it back in May, the film has received rave reviews from the media as well as massive support from celebrities, including Stephen Fry, Leona Lewis and Ewan McGregor, who have spoken out on Twitter. Most importantly, the documentary has shone a light on the cruel practices that orcas face in marine parks such as SeaWorld and Loro Parque.
Now, everyone in the UK will have the chance to watch this must-see film. Blackfish is set to air at 9 pm on Thursday, 21 November, on BBC Four’s Storyville!
Blackfish is a powerful film that tells the story of Tilikum, a performing orca whose captivity has led to the deaths of several people. Shocking video footage and emotional interviews explore his extraordinary nature, the cruel treatment of his species in captivity, the lives and losses of the trainers and the pressures brought to bear by the multibillion-pound marine park industry.
