Jimmy And The Whale Whisperer

7:00pm Sunday, September 23 on C4

Farmer and wild life enthusiast Jimmy Doherty travels to the beautiful Caribbean island of Dominica to meet an amazing man, who calls himself the Whale Whisperer. A decade ago Dominican Andrew Armour befriended an injured sperm whale calf he nicknamed Scar, and since then he has claimed he can communicate with Dominican Sperm whales, who let him swim among them like family. If ‘The Whale Whisperer’ is for real, Jimmy hopes he and top whale scientist Professor Joy Reidenberg (Inside Nature’s Giants) can help him get close enough to these gigantic, intelligent and little-known animals to carry out an important experiment.
