Blue whale's perfect timing to upstage TV presenter

A blue whale emerges from the ocean, just as a BBC presenter is explaining how hard they are to find.

Mark Carwardine was outlining the difficulties of whale-spotting and expressing frustration that he had been unable to spot one.

At that very moment the whale was seen as it surfaced behind him.

This clip was taken from Big Blue Live.
