Oceans: Our Blue Planet
Oceans: Our Blue Planet takes audiences on a global odyssey into the largest and least explored habitat on earth. Our first stop is the coral reefs, where we meet fascinating characters like the ingenious tuskfish that uses a tool to open its food. In the great forests of the sea, we find a cunning octopus who shields herself in an armoury of shells to hide from predators. In Antarctica, we explore unparalleled depths and encounter a seafloor rich with marine life. As we journey through our oceans, we share these extraordinary discoveries and uncover a spectacular world of marine wildlife beneath the waves.
Amazon Adventure tells the epic, true story of explorer Henry Bates’ 11-year journey through the visually stunning and biodiverse Amazon rainforest as a young man who risked his life for science in the 1850s. Bates unearths the major discovery of the phenomenon of mimicry, whereby certain animals adopt the look of others that helps them deceive predators and gain an advantage to survive. Little known to the public, Bates made other crucial contributions to biology: identifying 8,000 species new to science and most importantly, putting the first-ever case for the creation of a new species.
