Natural World - Manta Queen


Andrea - Queen of Mantas


Many years back I worked on one of the sequences for the Natural World episode 'Queen of Mantas'. I was working in the Maldives with the 'Big Wave TV' team to capture a newly discovered aggregation of feeding mantas.

Andrea: Queen of Mantas tells the remarkable story of thirty-year-old Andrea Marshall who gave up everything for a life in Mozambique observing the largest popuation of manta rays in the world. From dramatic feeding frenzies, remarkable courtship behavior to the discovery of a giant new species, Andrea’s findings are set to rock the world of marine biology. Andrea: Queen of Mantas is the revelatory true story of one young woman’s determination to understand and protect these remarkable creatures.


”Breathtakingly beautiful testimony... every ripple seemed part of an elegy…” - Guardian

”Manta Rays are extraordinary. For a start they look like an alien spaceship that’s inadvertently plunged into the ocean… superb underwater photography.” - Radio Times

”Watching them in numbers is indeed like watching a flock of birds. Beautiful.” - Daily Express Magazine

”Congratulations – really excellent figures… It looked fantastic going out last night, and I caught up with the Woman’s Hour piece – Andrea’s amazing – what a smart lady. Well done to all the team!” - Tim Martin, Commissioning Editor, BBC

”A truly inspiring, informative and beautiful film” - Di Williams, BBC NHU
