THE UNDERWATER STUDIOS PROVIDES SAFETY DIVERS & RESCUE RIB FOR BBC TOP GEAR'S CHANNEL CROSSING.
Having successfully provided safety divers for last years BBC Top Gear Amphibious challenge, We were once again asked to provide cover this year for the more ambitious challenge of crossing the English Channel from Dover to France. This enormous task involved no less than 16 Safety Divers, 3 Support Boats, 3 Ribs, Medics, and that does not include the BBC crew, cameras, sound etc. Due to weather conditions this crossing was delayed for 2 days with filming taking place within the safety of the Harbour. Due to the fluid situation of this type of filming, Risk Assessments and Dive Plans were constantly changing and being updated.
