Jacob is an expert climber and jumped at the chance to check out specialist kit used by the life team.

How has your experience reporting for Inside Life changed you?
Taking part in the series has changed the way I see TV, as there is lots of work involved and lots of planning. I really enjoyed working as part of the production team and would love to do something like that in the future. I really enjoyed all technical stuff especially the cameras.
What was your scariest moment?
We had to go out diving at night, so that we could see the manta rays feeding, and it was the scariest part because it was pitch black and you really couldn’t see anything.
What was your most exciting moment?
I hadn't really seen manta rays before apart from at aquariums in tanks and they look so small. When you see them in the wild they are humungous and swimming all around you it was so exciting.
Tell us the most interesting fact you learnt?
Before I went on the mission I had never heard of it before and I genuinely didn't believe that gobies could climb until I saw it, and they really do climb up waterfalls, they do it with a sucker underneath their tummy.
