With spectacular never-before-seen HD footage, this 4-part documentary series from The Nature of Things dives into the world's vast inter-connected ecosystem, telling the story from its turbulent birth to its threatened future:
Birth of an Ocean - reveals that we are just beginning to understand the complexity of the ocean and the immense influence it has on the planet and our own survival.
Footprints in the Sand - reveals the devastating impact of human activity on the ocean, focusing on the Mediterranean's contentious bluefin tuna fishery and the Gulf of Mexico's massive de-oxygenated dead zones. It also celebrates our successes with sustainable practices like conservation efforts by locals in Zanzibar, and the extraordinary turn-around in New Zealand's coral reefs.
Mysteries of the Deep - joins a team of scientists on an international expedition to the Mariana Arc as, each day, they make new discoveries about outlandish deep-sea dwellers and dramatic underwater volcanoes. Industrial fisheries are also delving into the deep waters to replace diminishing fish stocks. Can technology help us understand this little-known world before it changes forever?
The Changing Sea - vividly illustrates that carbon dioxide isn't just changing the climate on land. It's transforming the ocean in ways that haven't been seen for millions of years. Scientists are on a race to understand these changes and what they'll mean for thousands of species , including ours.
