    Featuring an unusual way to raise money for children's cancer research, "SEA-Inside: Pacific Northwest" kicks off its third year as the only TV series to focus on what's underwater in the Pacific Northwest. "The beauty of this series," describes its producer, John F. Williams, "is that it lifts oceanography out of its scientific pigeonhole and carries it into the worlds of art and story-telling."

    In video-magazine format, each episode of "SEA-Inside: Pacific Northwest" features several underwater-themed videos by a variety of producers. This first episode of 2008 offers a whirlwind tour of the prior two seasons as a tribute to the many videographers, photographers, musicians and artists who have contributed content to the show in 2006 and 2007. That is followed by a mini-documentary about a diveathon, an underwater fundraiser in which relay teams of divers created a presence underwater for 24 continuous hours in Puget Sound near Redondo. "No-one wants to hear that children, in particular, have cancer," said event co-organizer Valerie Lyttle, who is also an emergency room nurse and an underwater videographer. The amount of money raised by this small group of dedicated divers was astonishing.

    "SEA-Inside: Pacific Northwest" is a half-hour TV series produced by Suquamish, Washington resident and underwater videographer John F. Williams. "The point of this TV series is to introduce people in the Pacific Northwest to their underwater neighbors," said Williams, "it's the only thing like it in the region. The focus is on the Pacific Northwest, but a few videos from all over the globe are included, since similar issues are present in every ocean."

    Episode 13 will appear on 38 cable-access stations from British Columbia to Florida, from Vermont to southern California, reaching about three million homes. "SEA-Inside: Pacific Northwest" is a non-profit project that provides a new half-hour TV show about the underwater world every other month.
