FEATURE documentaries have proved very popular in recent years and The End of the Line, is the first about the devastating impact over- fishing is having on our oceans.

Based on the book by former Telegraph journalist Charles Clover and filmed over two years, it provides a dramatic expose of those in power who are taking advantage of the seas, with catastrophic consequences on the world's fish supplies.

It examines the imminent extinction of blue fin tuna, brought on by increasing western demand for sushi; the impact on marine life resulting in huge overpopulation of jellyfish; and the profound implications of a future world with no fish, which would bring certain mass starvation.

Clover confronts politicians and celebrity restaurateurs, who exhibit little regard for the damage they are doing to the oceans.
