Sights of the sea

Nature shows used to be half-hour or one hour self-contained episodes that dealt with one specific organism or group of organisms. Then came cable TV with the likes of Animal Planet, the Discovery Channel, and A&E. Now, with a paying audience, film makers could splurge and create extended serials on whole ecosystems. One of the most dramatic examples is The Blue Planet from BBC and distributed by Warner Brothers. Now released in a 4-disc DVD set, it comprises eight 50-minute episodes, each of which examines one specific aspect of the world's oceans. Each episode is narrated by Sir Richard Attenborough, and is comprised solely of footage of wildlife; no cut-aways to interviews in a studio, and no intervening video of computer simulations. Every second of footage is beautiful nature.

The 8 episodes cover the coasts, polar regions, deep sea, coral reefs, islands, open ocean, and mangrove swamps. Various organims such as fish, marine mammals, crustaceans, echinoderms and medusa are shown. Footage is provided in both day and night, offering views of how the ocean is a 24-hr city of life.

All in all, a great documentary series and worth the money to buy it.
