Overview

Though the ocean covers roughly three-quarters of planet Earth's surface, not even the world's top scientists and explorers can tell us exactly what we'd find if we were somehow able to take a stroll at the bottom of the sea. In this documentary, filmmakers combine the latest scientific research with state of the art computer-generated animation to offer a tantalizing glimpse of the mysterious world that houses more than half of our planet's species, but remains a vast mystery to all who reside above the waves.

National Geographic revolutionizes the perception that the public had about the oceans, until the release of this documentary. Beautiful photography, interviews with scientists/explorers, and stunning computer-generated imagery, render some justice to a world that still needs to deliver many secrets to humanity. Hopefully, humanity will learn from history, geology, and this media production, how many benefits it has to gain from managing the resources of the oceans responsibly.
