A US public broadcaster has been nominated for two awards for its 26-minute exploration of Bermuda’s reefs and wrecks.

The PBS series Changing Seas also highlighted an array of the island’s scientists.

PBS told The Royal Gazette that their production team was back in Bermuda — this time filming research into spotted eagle rays for an episode to air next year.

This year’s Bermuda episode, titled Bermuda: Life at Ocean’s Edge, was shot in November 2022 and broadcast in June.

The episode joins a sweep of 18 Emmy Award Suncoast Regional nominations produced by South Florida PBS staff.

The episode is nominated for Environment/Science Long Form Content and for Writer-Long Form Content, with the winners to be announced on December 2.

Featured are conservationist Chris Flook; Philippe Max Rouja, principal scientist at the Department of Environment and Natural Resources; Amy Maas, biological oceanographer at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences; Yvonne Sawall and Samantha de Putron, coral reef ecologists at Bios; and Samia Sarkis, the director of coral research and development at the Living Reefs Foundation.
