This definitive natural history of the world's oceans covers everything from popular shores and teeming shallows to the mysterious open depths. Two-thirds of the planet is covered by the oceans and yet they remain largely unexplored and certainly under-filmed. This series changes all that and subsequently changes our views of the deep. Advances in underwater photography have opened the doors to unknown territories never before explored. Immediately following each episode Making Waves takes the viewer on a unique behind-the-scenes experience with the Blue Planet team, as they show extraordinary patience and daring to achieve the ground-breaking footage.
