The Mills Media Creative team played a key role as international shipbuilder Cammell Laird held one of the biggest ceremonies in its illustrious history.
Sir David Attenborough joined more than 1,000 people at the Merseyside shipyard for the keel laying of the new £150 million polar research vessel named in his honour.
Speaking at the ceremony Sir David Attenborough said: ‘It is an honour to be invited to take part in the keel-laying ceremony. The Polar Regions are not only critical for understanding the natural world but they also have an enormous appeal for journalists, broadcasters and the public.
‘I have had several opportunities to experience the power of these places first hand. This new ship will ensure that scientists have access to these enigmatic regions to uncover secrets that we can only imagine at this point. Scientists working on this new ship will inform everyone about our changing world for generations to come.’
