Watch The Blue Planet
- 1 Season
The Blue Planet is a television series highlighting the natural history of the oceans of Earth. The 8 episode series explores many of the world's oceans searching for interesting plants and animals and documenting them in their natural habitat. The first episode introduces how the oceans and their inhabitants are affected by ocean currents, solar patterns, and tides. These conditions show how the food chain in the world's oceans is set up. With this introduction the series takes the audience throughout the oceans exploring the deep oceans, open oceans, and frozen oceans and within each episode shows the unique animals and wildlife found in that ecosystem. In the second half of the series the audience explores the coastal seas, tropical seas, seasonal seas, and coral seas. All of these different oceanic environments are explored and the plants and animal life is documented in each; sometimes the animals and behaviour caught on film have never been filmed before in the wild.
