Return Of The Blue Planet: The Message That Humanity Cannot Afford To Ignore



By  and  in The Conversation.


As expected, the first episode of Sir David Attenborough’s Blue Planet II has been greeted with rapturous applause: “the glories just kept on coming” gushed The Telegraph, while the Guardian’s TV reviewer, Sam Wollaston opined that the series will provide plenty of “did you see?” moments to share at work or in the school playground.

Produced by the BBC’s Natural History Unit in partnership with the Open University, and narrated by the world’s favourite natural historian, the series revisits The Blue Planet after a gap of 16 years.

The series does what the BBC’s Natural History Unit does best – films the natural world in a fresh and compelling way using the latest technology. Blue Planet II allows the audience to get up close and personal to an array of extraordinary creatures that depend on and harness Earth’s vast oceans for their survival.

From the depths of the abyss where sunlight is absent and the pressure immense, to the wild rapidly changing coast, viewers are introduced to a variety of habitats and privy to remarkable behaviours, some of which have never been filmed before.
