Overview

Take a surprising look at the world the lurks beneath the surface of the ocean in this video, which collects two episodes of the acclaimed nature series Blue Planet. In "Open Ocean, we're offered a glimpse of the vast stretches of water far away from shore where current and chance dictate which small species will happen by -- and larger species prey upon them for survival. And "The Deep" takes cameras to the bottom of the ocean, where darkness provides a home for some of the sea's strangest creatures, and obscures some of the most fantastic terrain on Earth.

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 culls two of the program's eight captivating parts, beginning with "Open Ocean," which explores an immense expanse of the seabed that thrives a staggering five miles below the surface. (Stagger? Actually, you'd be crushed!) Finally, "The Deep" plumbs the oceans' darkest depths, where perpetual night, pressure extremes, and some of the planet's wildest life forms thrive. This volume is available with Part 2 in a four-episode set, and another set includes the series' remaining episodes. 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.
