Oceans: Our Blue Planet is an extraordinary journey of discovery and wonder, transporting the audience to the deep, mysterious worlds of our oceans. Packed with drama, awe, and spectacle, we reveal untold stories of the ocean’s most astonishing creatures. The oceans are the only place on earth where the rate of new scientific discovery is increasing, expanding our frontiers of knowledge and revealing richer diversity than we could ever have imagined. From the freezing shores of the Arctic to the balmy waters of the tropics and the ocean depths, we share these extraordinary new discoveries. Using revolutionary underwater and on-board filming technology, we’ll dive into the giant void of the big blue, to explore the most spectacular locations, dramatic events and the intimate lives of the ocean’s most extraordinary creatures. Through these encounters we’ll also discover how we all depend on the health of this, the largest environment on earth.
