The Blue Planet, narrated by Sir David Attenborough is an epic new guide to the strange and spectacular denizens of our world's vast oceans. We know less about the oceans than we do about the surface of the moon, yet the sea covers two-thirds of our planet. From the familiar to the unknown, The Blue Planet reveals the sea and its communities at their most fearsome and alluring. The Blue Planet has taken 5 years to film by the BBC's celebrated Natural History Unit. Over the course of eight episodes it focuses on every type of marine landscape.

The Blue Planet chronicles the mysteries of the deep; coastline populations; sea mammals; tidal and climatic influences and the complete biological system that relies on and revolves around the world's oceans. All eight episodes of this incredible BBC television series are available in this triple-disc set.

Includes 3 new programmes: The Abyss, Dive To Shark Volcano & Amazon Abyss

It’s hard to rain too many superlatives on The Blue Planet, surely one of the finest and most fascinating nature documentaries ever made. But nonetheless, we’re going to try.

Long in the making, the idea behind the show was to, using some cutting-edge technology, film previously unseen areas of the ocean, and to investigate life beneath the waves. And in doing so, it pretty much encompasses the full spectrum of creature size. From the staggering, gigantic whale of the first episode, through the miniscule life that’s documented as the programme progresses, it’s a jaw-dropping experience.

It’s also a very, very accessible one. Thanks to a diligent, warm narrative from Sir David Attenborough, there’s plenty of fact married up to the sheer spectacle of The Blue Planet, although in many ways the stunning photography almost needs no accompaniment. It’s timeless work, too, with immense rewatch value, uncovering both life that’s never been photographed previously while charting the habits of the more familiar. Icing The Blue Planet’s cake is a series of short pieces documenting just how some of the incredible pictures were captured, and these are almost as interesting as the main feature.

Enough of those superlatives, though. Because The Blue Planet simply demands to be seen and enjoyed. Prepare, like many before you, to be mesmerised. --Simon Brew
