Storyline

Open ocean, a vast biotope covering two thirds of the planet, some shallow, some as deep as the mountain ranges are high. The ocean has an immense, precariously complex food chain, varying from microscopic animals, like krill, to whales, which ironically feed mainly on the former. Most species swim or float in it, many coming up for air, while other dive in from land or air, often to feed, but also to procreate on the coast, where some species come to lay their eggs. Even the shore is covered with life, largely based on organic matter, such as corpses. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

[first lines]
David Attenborough - Narrator: Away from all land, the ocean. It covers more than half the surface of our planet. And yet, for the most part, it is beyond our reach. Much of it is virtually empty, a watery desert. All life that is here is locked in a constant search to find food. A struggle to conserve precious energy in the open ocean.

I wanted to sleep but I can't!
9 October 2020 | by dienanhtentenSee all my reviews

Don't misunderstand me! This is a masterpiece nature TV show, but I can't put 10 out of 10 with this episode. If you've watched 10 previous episodes, you can feel the same as me. The music in this episode is nothing special. It's still a good-making documentary episode, but it's the last one so I want more intense scenes. The whale shark and the baitfish scene is awesome but it's not enough. And I really like the sound editing in this ep, so realistic and interesting. For all 11 episodes, the final scene make a good message, but for only this episode, it's not an interesting one.
