Man and Octopus

For six years citizen scientist Craig Foster has been diving into the underwater kelp forests of Simonstown until he developed an unlikely relationship with an octopus he named Superstar.  It was this extraordinary bond which led Foster to the halls of South Africa’s Parliament to plead for the preservation of animal and plant life in our oceans.    Carte Blanche explores this unlikely friendship.
