This version is a DISCOVERY EXCLUSIVE! 'If there were a Nobel Prize for wildlife filmmaking, these producers would get it.' - The Wall Street Journal From the producers of the Emmy Award-winning PLANET EARTH comes another highly-acclaimed series featuring the most extensive exploration of the Earth's oceans to date. Plunge into the mysterious deep with BLUE PLANET: SEAS OF LIFE, the definitive natural history of what goes on beneath the waters that cover our world. Narrated by Pierce Brosnan and Sir David Attenborough, this eight episode series takes viewers on an epic journey, revealing everything from exotic coral reef spectacles to never-before-seen things that go bump in the dark depths of the ocean floor. Featuring exclusive interviews with the scientists and production team, this six-year collaboration between Discovery Channel and the BBC will forever change how our planet's oceans are viewed. 5-Disc DVD Set includes: All eight episodes newly presented in Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound and 16:9 Letterbox. Bonus material includes new interviews with filmmakers and scientists. Episode 1: Frozen Seas Animals living in and out of the water face their greatest challenge in the crippling polar winters.

With the help of space-age submersibles, take a spectacular journey to previously unreachable depths. Episode 5: Tidal Seas Watch as the tidal seas explode with life thanks to the ever-present tug of the moon's gravity and learn why tidal marshes are one of the most ecologically productive parts of the world. Episode 6: Coasts The boundary between land and sea serves as a demarcation line between the beach-loving creatures that live onshore and the hungry predators that wait just beneath the surface of the water. Episode 7: Seasonal Seas Shafts of sunlight radiate through the ocean's 'ceiling' and provide energy for the myriad creatures that live in the temperate sea, the richest of all underwater habitats. Episode 8: Ocean World The oceans are an integral part of the Earth's life cycle, influencing weather systems and supporting an enormous range of life.
