|Join Sir David Attenborough on a definitive exploration of the mysterious bodies of water known as our planet's oceans. From the coasts to the poles, from the reefs to the deep, travel with behemoths like the Blue Whale and microscopic animals like coral polyps to experience the oceans as never before. Witness the sea and its inhabitants at their most fearsome and alluring. View behaviors--captured for the first time--that make this series both breathtaking and groundbreaking in its content and scope. An astounding journey into the vast habitats that cover two-thirds of our planet that you will never forget! Two episodes are included on this DVD. "Ocean World": The blue whale is a perfect symbol for the oceans: the vast blue expanse that dominates our planet while still remaining largely unexplored and mysterious. Our oceans' influence dominates the world's weather systems. They support an enormous range of life, from the largest whales to the smallest plankton, from hordes of sea birds to lonely deep-sea fish. In "Ocean World," explore the sheer scale, power and complexity of these mysterious oceans that govern this blue planet. "Frozen Seas": Investigate the remarkable habitat of the frozen seas, where pack-ice at both poles is constantly on the move, and in winter freezes solid with air temperatures 70¼C below freezing. Only in spring, with the retreating ice and light reaching the water, does life begin again. Plankton blooms and feeds vast hordes of migrating fish, birds, whales, seals and polar bears. Walruses rake the seabed for clams. Minke and humpback whales gorge themselves on gigantic swarms of krill. But it is a brief indulgence, for the ice soon returns and pushes life back into the ocean.|
Editor's NoteThe second volume of this BBC series includes the episodes "Open Ocean" and "The Deep." "Open Ocean" studies the underwater community in the deepest oceanic landscapes where only the blue of the ocean and the sky above can be seen for miles. Below the surface at these points are where the most active predators dwell. Amazing footage of striped marlin, dolphin, and even shearwater birds hunting gigantic schools of fish highlight this volume of technological and oceanographic wonder. "The Deep" takes the viewer to the abyss. The constant darkness and strange life, plant, and mountainous forms of the ocean's floor are seen at depths no previous underwater film has ever dared descend to.
