Box set containing the complete BBC natural history series
examining life beneath the world's oceans. 'The Blue Planet'
presents an overview of the programmes to come, offering a sense of
the amazing variety and complexity of the underwater kingdom. 'The
Deep' explores the deepest depths of the oceans and looks at the
predators which live there. 'Open Ocean' examines the stretches of
deserted sea where very little life can be found, except some of
the most dangerous predators of all. In 'Frozen Seas' life in the
Arctic seas is compared with life in the Antarctic. 'Seasonal Seas'
looks at the way the sun effects the marine environment in the
temperate seas. 'Coral Seas' examines the way coral reefs are
formed, the life which flourishes among them, and the destruction
which ultimately comes their way. In 'Tidal Seas' the series
examines tidal movements and their effect upon marine life. And
finally 'Coasts' looks at the way underwater life uses the regions
above the tide line, a habitat which holds few indigenous species
but plays host to many visitors. Also included are two special
episodes: 'Making Waves', a look at some of the characters who
helped bring the series to the screen; and 'Deep Trouble', an
investigation of man's relation to the sea.
