Sir David Attenborough narrates this critically acclaimed series that dives deep into the marine environment of Planet Earth. Although two-thirds of the world's surface is covered with water, scientists know less about the oceans than they do about the surface of the moon. This limited series travels from various coasts to the poles to examine watery denizens ranging from the gigantic blue whale to microscopic coral polyps.

The planet is teeming with myriad life forms, both plant and animal, all interlocked in a struggle for survival. As time goes on, some living things are forced to adapt and change to survive. This series chronicles some of the most unusual, if not downright bizarre, behaviors that living organisms have devised to keep their species alive. The 11-episode series was four years in the making, taking camera crews to every continent and habitat.
From the frozen tundra in the north to the dry forests of the equator, Sir David Attenborough narrates a compelling view of the planet. "Planet Earth" was the first natural history documentary to be filmed in high definition, and now a decade later improved technology has made it possible to capture further details, from elusive animal behaviors to previously inaccessible remote landscapes. In addition to exploring the wilderness, the series examines urban dwellings, focusing on animals that have adapted to city life.
The team behind the triple-Emmy Award-winning series "David Attenborough's First Life" return with another wildlife spectacular hosted by the nature veteran. The focus of the series is the Great Barrier Reef, which Attenborough became enthralled with after filming there back in 1957. Revisiting the area once again with the latest camera technology allows the filming crew to capture even the smallest life-forms. Through the use of satellite scanning, the expanse of the world's largest living organism is viewed in all its glory.
Whenever documentary filmmakers at Discovery Channel and the BBC unite for a project, stellar television seems to follow. "Planet Earth: Africa" stems from this collaboration, as did the breakthrough natural history series "Life" in 2009. David Attenborough narrated that one, and he's back to take viewers on a journey through the vast and diverse continent of Africa. Four years in the making, during which more than 2,000 hours of video were shot, the program consists of six hour-long episodes that feature an array of never-before-filmed species, animal behaviors and previously unknown places. Cameras uncover the extreme dangers of the Kalahari, the dense forests and snow-capped peaks of the Savannah, the dynamic Congo rainforest, the ever-changing climate of the Cape and the massive and parched Sahara.
"Planet Earth: South Pacific" is a six-part British nature documentary that surveys the natural history of the islands of the South Pacific regions including many spots in New Zealand. The program documents the natural history of the region, the South Pacific spans from the Hawaiian Islands to New Zealand and can be home to a variety of animal life and plant life. Viewers can see in depth looks at how the remote islands were colonized, see rare footage of an underwater volcano erupting, and the varying ecological niches. Hosted by Benedict Cumberbatch.
