Trillions of pieces of plastic are choking the very lifeblood of the Earth and every marine animal, from the smallest plankton to the largest mammals, is being affected. Wildlife biologist Liz Bonnin visits scientists working at the cutting-edge of plastics research and joins work with some of the world's leading marine biologists and campaigners to discover the true dangers of plastic in the oceans and what it means for the future of all life on the planet, including humans.

If you only watch one documentary this year, please make it this one.

If you think you know we should be recycling plastic or using less plastic products, then you also need to know the sheer scale of the problem across the planet. We go on about not using plastic bags and single use bottles, or campaigning to stop the use of plastic straws. Well, that's just a drop in the ocean. Literally. I GUARANTEE 99.9% of people watching this programme will completely unaware of the scale of the effect of plastic on this planet.

This documentary does not show lots of cute animals or creatures in distress, just a couple at most. That's not the point of the programme. The makers don't want to make viewers switch channels. They want them to watch the whole thing and then, if not proactive in helping to make things better, then to at least be more aware of the choices they make.

For years the focus has been on climate change. For the vast majority of people this is much more urgent than climate change.
