The BBC returns to film Son Doong Cave for an upcoming Landmark Natural History Series

After nearly two years of complete disruption of international tourism in Vietnam, the country is now ready to welcome international visitors. The BBC film crew has also been patiently waiting for two years for the opportunity to film in Son Doong Cave. And now they get the chance and coming to Vietnam to do their wish.

Son Doong Cave – Quang Binh, Viet Nam

The film crew consists of six members, led by producer Theo Webb, as well as cameramen and a safety expert from the United States and the United Kingdom. The focus of the shoot is the magnificent Son Doong Cave, the world’s largest cave passage. Almost a ton of specialised film making equipment is required for this extremely high quality production. The Oxalis Adventure is the company that facilitates this documentary project. They include 30 porters, cooks, guides and caving experts will spend 16 days continuously in Son Doong Cave. This would be a huge challenge for those not familiar with living and working underground. Even for the staff, 16 days without many home comforts such as a hot shower or use of the internet will be a challenge!

The BBC’s natural history programmes always attract a large worldwide audience. Sir David Attenborough, a well-known BBC presenter, also introduced their 2022 nature documentary series during the COP26 conference in the UK in October 2021. The wonders of the world’s largest cave will be brought to life in amazing detail for this landmark natural history series. This series is expected to reach more than 500 million people around the world.
