Polychaete TV news star?

Hello folks,

Star is a bit of an exaggeration of course but one must make the most of
the rare moments when a polychaete may have made it onto the little screen
across the planet. 

The occasion - one of those tantalisingly brief 'scientists discover new
life forms' items that the TV news people sometimes will give us between
the murders, the mayhem, and the politics. Probably recirculated from one
of the big news gatherers.

I think it was a report from deep-sea research off Japan. There it was for
about 3 seconds, sculling across the screen towards the camera,
transparent, segmented, and 'about the size of a paper clip' according to
the voice-over. It looked rather like a planktonic polychaete. 

Did my eyes deceive me? Did anyone else see it?
