Untold stories from a magical world
This bold cinematic experience takes viewers on a magical adventure across the greatest, yet least known parts of our planet – our oceans. Since Blue Planet aired in 2001, our understanding of life beneath the waves has completely changed. Travelling from the icy polar seas to the vibrant blues of the coral atolls, Blue Planet II shares these astonishing new discoveries. Meet the strange octopuses lurking in the depths of the Antarctic ocean. Watch giant trevally fish leap to catch birds in mid-air. And ride on the back of a hammerhead shark as it attacks. Inspiring awe and wonder, this series reveals surprising new places, charismatic new characters and extraordinary new behaviours.
“The truly spectacular elements in Blue Planet II can't be described in print with any justice. You just have to watch it unfold and be a little grateful that the BBC spent four years in production on this.”

“A worthy successor to the original, Blue Planet II also brings an urgent environmental warning that the first lacked: It demonstrates that the seas are in trouble and that the world must act.”
“Even if you are braced for a glorious production, Blue Planet II is likely to take your breath away.”
