Colossal Squid Doco Coming to NZ screens!

Yes, faithful New Zealand squid fans, the time is nearly upon us!

I had a call from SKY NZ who happily told me that you all need to tune into SKY’s Discovery Channel on 11 JANUARY 2009 at 7:30pm to see the premiere of the Colossal Squid doco.

The doco was filmed during the great defrost and examination in April this year, and the crew came back to film the move of the squid from the thawing/preservation tank to its bright and shiny display tank.  Discovery Channel also helped Te Papa with the preservation of the squid – cheers Discovery Channel!

If you miss it on 11 January here are the re-runs times:

12 Jan @ 1.30am
12 Jan @ 8.30am
18 Jan @ 3.30pm

International squid fans – I will hopefully have the remaining international premiere dates soon!
