Dr Jon Copley  Ask An Ocean Explorer

How deep do sharks swim? Have more people been into space then the deep ocean? And what effect are we having on the health of our seas? Our everyday lives are connected to the deep ocean in ways we seldom realise. In Ask An Ocean Explorer Dr Jon Copley, marine biologist of over 20 years and advisor for the BBC's Blue Planet II, explains the science and wonder of the deep ocean, answering these questions and more he combines the untold history of ocean exploration with a personal account of what it’s like to be a ‘bathynaut’, dive in a mini-submarine and encounter the weird and wonderful creatures of the deep.

It is really great to have a Literary Festival in Dorchester and I really appreciate all the hard work that goes into making it happen.

William and I had a very interesting and often hilarious time putting (our presentation) together – fortunately we both wanted to be thoroughly prepared, so we refined and refined… we enjoyed ourselves, aided and abetted by the helpfulness of you and yours behind the scenes, the warmth of the audience, and the pleasantness of the setting. Speaking at your festival was an altogether happy experience. I only wish I had managed to organise listening to many of the other talks, which I really wanted to do… Many congratulations to you and all your team, and all wishes for Festival no. 3!

I did so enjoy being with you and doing my stuff. I hope to see you again, though I am so busy I don't seem to have time for writing much at present! I am
sure your festival will go from strength to strength….

I'm now back at my desk after Ann Cleeves' mammoth book tour and wanted to send a note to say a huge thank you for hosting such a fantastic event for us. It was a definite highlight out of the 30 events!
