Earth’s Wildest Waters: The Big Fish (BBC-2 1 Nov with Ben Fogle)

Published

on

AIRDATE: Sunday 1 November 2015 at 8.00pm on BBC Two

Episode 4 (of 6)

The next leg of the expedition leads Ben Fogle and the five anglers to Costa Rica.

Teeming with life and hundreds of species both above and below the water, there is no shortage of fish when the anglers explore the Pacific Ocean this week – and come face to face with some of the most incredible species in the world.

Their expedition start fishing close to the shore, where the anglers seek out the fast and furious roosterfish off the coast of the Osa Peninsula. Their speed, strength and extraordinary dorsal fin make them one of the most sought-after sport fish in the Central America.

On their second day in Costa Rica the anglers fish in teams, the way the locals do. Braving the rough surf of the Pacific, they grapple with new techniques and apply them to what they learnt with in Cuba and Laos, taking it to the next level.

Finally the anglers leave the coast completely and set off out onto the Pacific Ocean. There, they feel the pressure as they seek the fastest fish in the world – the sailfish. The anglers will have just one day to catch and tag this incredible fish, but things don’t go quite according to plan…

Matt Hayes will be judging alongside local fishing expert Todd Staley, who has lead the way for fish conservation in Costa Rica. Between them they will be watching the anglers’ every move as they battle through their three fishing tasks of the quarter-final.

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
