The history of underwater exploration, today at “Tuesdays at L’Oceanogràfic” Today, Tuesday the 5th of July, the City of Arts and Sciences completes its “Tuesdays at L’Oceanogràfic” series with a lecture on “The History of diving from the Romans and into the future”, given by Juan A. Romero, Director of the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth, UK, and an independent film-maker who has worked on over fifty underwater documentaries.
During the lecture, Romero will talk about the most important events in the history of modern diving and underwater cinematography, from the first underwater photographs taken by Jean Painlevé, to the explorations of Captain Cousteau and the cutting-edge technology used in Blue Planet. “Tuesdays at L\'Oceanogràfic" is an educational programme organised by the City of Arts and Sciences, which started last November to provide greater knowledge on the marine environment. It has been led by Spanish and international experts on biology, ecology and marine resource management.
