Over the past few months Mark Horstman and his film crew from ABC1’s Catalyst program, have been collecting stories about the current Marine National Facility research vessel, Southern Surveyor. 

He’s been talking to the crew who man the ship, the scientists who conduct experiments and the support staff who make all the scientific equipment work.

And, we’ve been filming onboard for him in the Southern Ocean!

Catalyst has been promoting the story online .

So don’t forget to tune into ABC1 at 8pm tonight.

If you miss the show, you can always watch it on ABC iView.

I’m a bit excited and can’t wait to see the finished story!
