|We know more about the surface of the moon than we do about the deep oceans, yet the sea constitutes two thirds of our planet. These two episodes from The Blue Planet: Seas of Life reveal the sea and its communities at their most fearsome and alluring. "Tidal Seas": The sun and moon pull billions of tons of water around the world with every turn of the tide. The strongest tides empty entire bays, smash riverbanks, and strand sea creatures on suddenly dry land. Weaker tides coax schools of giant stingrays through astounding underwater arches. And as the water recedes, a hurricane tide creates a sparkling world of salt crystals inhabited only by tiny shrimp and bright pink flamingos. "Coast": From rocky cliffs to gentle dunes, the coasts are always changing. Day in and day out, they are battered by crashing waves. Seabirds come here by the thousands to nest, while baby turtles hatch and race to the sea, pursued by hungry predators. Young sea lion pups are born and play on the sand--until a killerwhale attacks, crashing in on the surf. But when breeding season is over, life returns to the sea and the shores are empty once again.|
"...as awe-inspiring as anything you are ever likely to see on television. The Times [London]
