Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Although the oceans comprise two-thirds of planet Earth, much of what goes on beneath their surface remains shrouded in mystery, and most certainly soaking wet. The BBC series The Blue Planet: Seas of Life dips into the briny deep, exploring an aquatic community teeming with life. Underwater cameras reveal a capricious world where seas shift seasonally, with ecosystems that thrive during long summer days and turn fiercely unforgiving as the weather changes. Footage of coastal life boggles the mind: Killer whales attack sea lion pups as they play in the shallow surf; baby turtle hatchlings race to the sea, pursued by ravenous predators. Narrated by David Attenborough, this four-part series was hailed by London's Times "as awe-inspiring as anything you are ever likely to see on television." It is visually spectacular. For anyone who has ever stumbled across an episode of Wild Discovery and become instantly hooked, Blue Planet is a must-see -- a snapshot of the natural world in all its raw beauty.

    A fisherman's dream!

    Watching this and switching to the Food Network is torture if you love the taste of fish. I wish the dvd came with coupons for Red Lobster! The missing Red Lobster coupons was a real disappointment.

    Absolutely Gorgeous

    If you're interested in the ocean at all, this set is for you. The pictures are fantastic, the narration is informative and interesting. There are several special features that will delight you. This set inspired me to take up studying oceanography.

    Vital

    This is a great series- excellent picture quality, informative narration and a huge variety of fish, animals and plants. Each of the 8 DVDs has a 'making of' feature, and there are photo galleries, fact files, trailers and interviews. If you love nature and can afford it, this complete set should be the only ocean documentary you'll ever need.
