Veteran producer, actor and TV host Mark Thompson will be taking to the air live on Friday, November 25th to lead us through the ‘Shark Attack Experiment’.  Stationed in the middle of the action, Mark will be on board our TV-Studio at sea — a tricked out catamaran, 6km off the coast of Scottburgh, South Africa.

A two-time Emmy award-winner for producing, writing, and hosting a variety of television specials, Mark admits “This may very well be the most exciting show I’ve ever done.”
