Photos: Ocean Vet TV Series Premiere Event

On Friday night, Barr’s Bay Park in Hamilton played host to the international premiere of the TV series Ocean Vet, with the event serving as a celebration of the completion of the series, allowing attendees to view an exclusive viewing of an episode with a specially recorded video introduction from series narrator Michael Douglas.

“Those familiar with the project will know it is presented by one of Bermuda’s late great personalities, Dr Neil Burnie. The event paid tribute to Neil’s amazing contribution to the series and his passion for the different marine species he helped throughout its creation,” a spokesperson said.


“Although the series was produced by the UK’s gassProductions, the vast majority of people that created it were Bermudian. It was only fitting that the first people in the world to view the series were the people of Bermuda.”

Series Producer Andrew Smith said, “It’s amazing to be back in Bermuda hosting our premiere here, there is absolutely nowhere else in the world more appropriate.

“All of the Bermudians who have helped put this event together have done a spectacular job and I can’t thank them enough. Everyone is having a great time, it’s just a shame Neil isn’t here in person to deafen us all with his saxophone!”

Series marine biologist Choy Aming said, “This is exactly how Neil would have wanted it, all of his friends and family celebrating this series the Bermudian way, enjoying it with music, drink, good food, good company and plenty of dancing.”

“In a fitting tribute to Neil and his ocean vet crew a number of different cocktails had been put together for the event including a ‘Burnie Sunrise’ a ‘Cha-Ching Aming’ even a ‘saxomonica’,” the spokesperson added.

“The event was a huge success, everybody loved the episode and were keen to see more. Each episode will be screened a number of times over the next few weeks at the BUEI and tickets can be purchased via their website.”

“The series is currently being reviewed by several major US broadcasters. Once a broadcaster is finalised, details on channels and times will be published via the Ocean Vet Facebook page.”
