Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Far from being just another documentary about fish, the BBC's informative and hypnotic The Blue Planet: Seas of Life reveals the sea and its communities at their most fearsome and alluring, diving boldly into Earth's final frontier. David Attenborough narrates this wet and wild journey, which features breathtaking underwater photography taken literally from sea to shining sea, and then some. This volume includes two of the program's eight captivating parts, beginning with the fact-filled "Ocean World," with discussions of everything from the power of the blue whale to how the sun and moon help control and tame the ocean. "Frozen Seas" ventures into the Arctic and Antarctic, unrelenting habitats where only the toughest survive -- specifically, plankton, clams, walruses, and humpback whales, among others. The Blue Planet deftly urges inquisitive landlubbers to dive deep into murky brine, a daunting prospect made marvelously inviting by Attenborough and producer Alastair Fothergill, the former head of BBC-TV's natural history department.
