How many viewers would you say have downloaded the Perspectives on Ocean Science series from the Birch Aquarium at Scripps? 50,000? 100,000? Ok, let’s go way out, how about 500,000? Keep going….

Over 2,500,000. That stunned even me….

Over 2 and a half million downloads. That isn’t clicks. That’s viewers saving the programs so they can be watched online or on the go with a mobile media device. Now, of course, that isn’t a blip compared to that Superbowl wardrobe failure, or even that owl cam….but it is the most reputable, relevant and current information available on a wide variety of ocean science topics, straight from the source — unadulterated, unabridged, un-spun.

So you can join in and see what’s so interesting to so many of your fellow viewers, we’ve prepared a summer long line-up of the most frequently downloaded programs. Every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday night from June through August you can find a Perspectives on Ocean Science program airing on UCSD-TV. And don’t forget, you can always view the programs on-line, or download them and take them with you….and join the interested millions who already have.
