Blue Planet II
"The oceans, seemingly limitless, invoke in us a sense of awe and wonder, and also sometimes fear. They cover 70% of the surface of our planet, and yet they are still the least explored. Hidden beneath the waves, right beneath my feet, there are creatures beyond our imagination."
Blue Planet II
"We are at unique stage in our history. Never before have we had such an awareness of what we are doing to the planet, and never before have we had the power to do something about that. Surely we have a responsibility to care for our blue planet. The future of humanity, and indeed all life on Earth, now depends on us."
BBC tager os endnu engang på en magisk rejse til den største, men mindst kendte del af vores planet, de store oceaner, hvor forskerne siden den første serie i 2001 har fået en langt dybere forståelse af livet i havene. Mød her den særegne blæksprutte, der lurer i dybet af Det Sydlige Ishav, kæmpetrevallen, der fanger fugle i flugten, og rid på ryggen af en spækhugger, når den farer løs på en fiskestime. Alt liv på jorden er afhængig af havenes evne til at give liv. De store oceaner er vores globale iltapparat!
På senare år har vår kunskap om vad som sker i haven förändrats. Blue Planet II använder sig av banbrytande vetenskapliga och teknologiska genombrott för att utforska nya världar, avslöja förbluffande varelser och ovanliga beteenden hos djur. På resan genom havsdjup, korallrev, öppna hav, gröna hav och kuster får vi dela dessa fantastiska upptäckter. Men vi vet att havens hälsotillstånd är hotade. Aldrig tidigare har det varit viktigare att utforska våra mest avsides belägna hav och undersöka vad framtiden kommer att betyda för vår blå planet.
Ova dokumentarna serija pruža vrhunsko filmsko iskustvo i vodi gledatelje u čarobnu pustolovinu kroz najveće, ali najslabije istraženo područje našeg planeta - oceane.Otkad je 2001. emitirana prva serija "Plavi planet", naše razumijevanje života u podmorju potpuno se promijenilo. Putujući od ledenih polarnih mora do blistavog plavetnila koraljnih atola, serija će podijeliti s nama ta zapanjujuća otkrića.
Families can talk about climate change and the oceans. Did you learn anything new from Planet Earth: Blue Planet II? How has human influence had a negative impact on the health of the planet's water? How does this affect different species? Do you think things are changing for the better now that this issue is more prominent? What can you do to make a positive change?
And show the extraordinary they did. The team dove deeper than anyone else ever had in those waters, and revealed that the freezing seas below the most remote and extreme environment on the planet teem with life.
"Never before have we had such an awareness of what we are doing to the planet and never before have we had the power to do something about that," said Attenborough in the final episode. "Surely we have a responsibility to care for our blue planet."
At the time, relatively few people seemed to care. The story I wrote never made it onto the pages of the newspaper I worked for. But fast forward to 2019, and plastic pollution is regarded as one of the most important environmental crises facing our planet. Public campaigns have forced manufacturers to replace long-lasting disposable plastics with biodegradable alternatives. New rules on plastic recycling are being introduced around the world and single-use plastic bags are being taxed or banned outright in many countries.
Like Planet Earth II before it, Blue Planet II has redefined what we expect from a documentary: from the previously unseen stories uncovered to the quality of the pictures, to the attention paid to the soundtrack. The icing on the cake is Sir David Attenborough, surely one of the best people on the planet, who provides placid but informative narration, at once both excited enthusiast and concerned ecologist.
[Forgot to log this when I finished it months ago]Afterthoughts: David Attenborough is one of the greatest human beings on the planet. A household name loved by all Brits, and anyone else around the world who has watched his incredible shows.
Embark on a magical, mind-blowing voyage into the most undiscovered place on our planet: the ocean. Planet Earth: Blue Planet II premieres on Saturday, January 20 at 9/8c, as a simulcast event across AMC, BBC America, IFC, WE tv and SundanceTV. Watch a trailer here. 041b061a72
