Secrets Of The Aquarium, 8pm, BBC2

WHERE there’s water, there’s rust, and tonight we follow repair work on the boat that is submerged in the Atlantic Ocean tank. There’s a hole in the boat that Friday the turtle could get through, and no one wants the star attraction to get trapped inside — turtles breathe air, so if he can’t get out in time, our flippered friend could drown. We also meet 86-year-old volunteer and ‘eagle ray whisperer’ Jill (pictured), who taught volunteer co-ordinator Jenny everything she knows, and get an update on recently rescued turtle Heidi, who is missing a flipper and is having trouble diving. It might be relaxing watching life in the aquarium, but for the staff, the work and worry never seem to stop.
