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, we witness shark behaviour from the heart of the action.
Its hard to rain too many superlatives on The Blue Planet, surely one of the finest and most fascinating nature documentaries ever made. But nonetheless, were going to try.
Long in the making, the idea behind the show was to, using some cutting-edge technology, film previously unseen areas of the ocean, and to investigate life beneath the waves. And in doing so, it pretty much encompasses the full spectrum of creature size. From the staggering, gigantic whale of the first episode, through the miniscule life thats documented as the programme progresses, its a jaw-dropping experience.
Its also a very, very accessible one. Thanks to a diligent, warm narrative from Sir David Attenborough, theres plenty of fact married up to the sheer spectacle of The Blue Planet, although in many ways the stunning photography almost needs no accompaniment. Its timeless work, too, with immense rewatch value, uncovering both life thats never been photographed previously while charting the habits of the more familiar. Icing The Blue Planets cake is a series of short pieces documenting just how some of the incredible pictures were captured, and these are almost as interesting as the main feature.
Enough of those superlatives, though. Because The Blue Planet simply demands to be seen and enjoyed. Prepare, like many before you, to be mesmerised. --Simon Brew

This set of four DVDs contains the whole Blue Planet original series, a documentary about how the series was made, plus some separate interviews with various people involved in making it. There are also some separate programmes that are not part of the original series and don't feature David Attenborough.
The Blue Planet series is superb, with great camera work, superb narration and the music is also well above the standard usually found in such documentaries. Some of the creatures featured in the deep sea episode had ever been seen before the camera crew filmed them for this series, so it really was ground-breaking work. Even some of the creatures that had been seen were never shot better than in this series. The images are beautiful and inspiring, the explanations clear, informative and interesting. One of the best wildlife documentary series ever, as you might expect with any David Attenborough effort.
The documentary about making the series is also interesting, and I liked some of the interviews with the people involved. David Attenborough would tell you it is team work that makes these programs and being one of the best writers and presenters he works with the best cameramen, researchers and producers. It's great to see them credited and interviewed too, and to see a little of their personalities which are normally hidden from us when we watch their work.
The other programs are inevitably less well made but still interesting, though I found the American presenter on one of them a poor choice. Many American wildlife documentaries are excellent and there are American presenters who are superb, but I didn't think this guy was one of them.Read more ›
