Timothy Ng Sau-kin, deputy director of the Ocean Park Conservation Foundation, has seen his fair share of wildlife, but even he was amazed by what he was watching on the TV screen: a fish with a vacuum-like snout feeding deep underwater.

The event was the unveiling of a new season of BBC Earth's Planet Earth, at Central's Peking Garden Restaurant. Everyone in the room, from media to Ocean Park personnel, had their eyes glued to the screen, forgetting about their lunch.

Planet Earth explores hidden caves, vast deserts and other wild natural sites in 62 countries. The show shares Ocean Park's vision, Ng (pictured, at left) says. 'Our common goal is to bring to as many people as possible the appreciation of our natural world,' he says.

The show premiered last week, and will air every Thursday at 9.05pm on BBC Knowledge.
