Ushuaia TV will be broadcasting “The Prince and the Sea”, a close-up look at the voyage of the exploration ship Yersin, which left Monaco at the end of July, that follows in the footsteps of Prince Albert I, the great-great-grandfather of HSH Prince Albert, to Macaronesia. The screening takes place on Friday, December 8, which is World Climate Day.

Led by journalist Christine Oberdorff, the Ushuaia TV team records the exploits of Monaco’s new oceanographic vessel on this “memorial” trip.

The documentary was previewed to invited guests on Tuesday, December 5, at the Oceanographic Museum in the presence of Prince Albert, where Christine Oberdorff introduced and presented the result of several months of work.

Following a previous programme about Venturi, the electric-powered automotive company broadcast in May, the new show highlights the unfailing interest of the Principality and Prince Albert in the oceans and their necessary preservation.

The 75-minute programme airs at 8:40 pm on Ushuaia TV, the TF1 channel devoted to nature and the environment.
