"The most fantastic ocean DVD !!!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a must have if you have any love for the moana. If you do not have any afinity with the planets oceans-then again this is a must see. After seeing disc 3 you may stop visiting the chip shop, or assisting those who rape and pillage the beautiful oceans, of which only 1% have been explored but which much more has been destroyed by very destructive fishing methods [i.e bottom trawling etc]. A great present for the young who maybe able to stop what us ‘grown-ups?’ have done and continue to do. This reminds us we share this planet-we don't own it. Aroha Dave

I doubt you would find a better glimpse into the wonders beneath the sea anywhere else on earth (aside from going, and seeing for yourself, which we all know is either not possible, not feasible, or (without squillions of dollars of high-tech gadgetry) simply not practical). David Attenborough is, quite simply, the most brilliant conservationist, Earthmologist, and animalologist in the world and he offers a simply stunning portrait of our oceans and the life teeming within those vast depths. I believe this documentary series took around 5 years to film, and it certainly shows. It is informative, interesting, and complete, and I would seriously recommend this to anybody interested in, or even the least bit concerned with our oceans and where they are heading in the future.

"Awesome Series"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

It's just a shame that you can't get a blu-ray version of this here, on this side of the world, since with a 55 inch big screen TV, ordinary DVD just doesn't cut it anymore (HD wise). Very skilfully filmed with clear and interesting narration by David Attenborough. The Special Edition comes with numerous additional features…all of which are very interesting. I would definitely recommend this!

The Blue Planet from BBC is the first ever comprehensive series on the natural history of the world's oceans. Narrated by David Attenborough, the extraordinary images of this marine epic reveal the sea at its most fearsome and alluring, exposing some of its best kept secrets. Enter a world of breathtaking beauty and discover new species, visit unseen habitats and witness stories of survival never caught on camera before.

Accompanied by a superb soundtrack from the award-winning composer George Fenton, this DVD is further enhanced by the technical brilliance of the film and sound quality.

The Abyss sends cameras to the last great frontier on our planet – the deep sea – to reveal an amazing world including rare footage of the most incredible sea-life.

Amazon Abyss searches the river's hidden depths to find primitive dolphins, giant pink electric knifefish, giant black piranha and other astonishing creatures.

Dive to Shark Volcano ventures to Cocos Island, an underwater volcano whose waters are a haven for sharks. As cameras reach new depths, witness shark behaviour from the heart of the action.
