The landmark natural history series returns presented by David Attenborough. Oceans as we've never known them. Shorelines we thought we'd explored. Depths we thought we'd charted. Seas we thought we knew. Think again. In the last decade, more species have been discovered than ever before. Blue Planet II takes viewers on a voyage like no other. Featuring music by Hans Zimmer. Blue Planet II Wiki
1 - One Ocean
In recent years, our knowledge of life beneath the waves has been transformed. Using cutting-edge technology, One Ocean takes us on a journey from the intense heat of the tropics to our planet's frozen poles to reveal new worlds and extraordinary never-before-seen animal behaviors.
2 - The Deep
A ground-breaking journey to the Deep, our final frontier and home to real-life aliens, from monstrous sharks to shrimps in glass cages and perhaps the origin of all life on Earth.
3 - Coral Reefs
Corals build themselves homes of limestone in the warm, clear, shallow seas of the tropics. Their reefs occupy less than one tenth of one percent of the ocean floor, yet they are home to a quarter of all known marine species. They are complex, infinitely varied structures providing all kinds of homes for their many residents.
4 - Big Blue
The big blue is the world's greatest wilderness, far from shore and many kilometers deep. It's a vast marine desert where there is little to eat and nowhere to hide. Yet it's home to some of the biggest and most spectacular creatures on earth. This episode reveals what it takes to survive in this savage and forbidding world.
5 - Green Seas
It's our green seas, not the blue, that bring life to our oceans. Here sunlight powers the growth of enchanted forests of kelp, mangroves and prairies of sea grass. They are the most abundant but fiercely competitive places in the ocean to live. The most bountiful kelp forests are found off the tip of southern Africa, where two great oceans collide.
6 - Coasts
On the coast, two worlds collide. Coasts are the most dynamic and challenging habitats in the ocean - that brings great rewards but also great danger. The extraordinary animals that live here must find ingenious ways to cope with two very different worlds.
7 - Our Blue Planet
Uncover the impact that our modern lives are having on our best-loved characters from this series, including albatross parents unwittingly feeding their chicks discarded plastic and mother dolphins potentially exposing their newborn calves to pollutants through their contaminated milk. Scientists have even discovered that increasing noise levels may stop baby clownfish finding their way home.
8 - The Making of Blue Planet II
A fascinating special, revealing the stories behind Blue Planet II's most memorable moments. Discover what went into creating this stunning natural history series, as we show you the lengths the crews went to and the groundbreaking filming technology they used to capture incredible footage.

I paid for this show because I wanted it to be my first 4K purchase. I thought it would have gone without saying that a show like this would have been presented in the best quality possible. Otherwise I love the show and would love to give it 5 stars.
This is by far the best BBC Natural History Documentary Series ever. A very inspiring nature documentary series. David Attenborough is great as ever as the narrator. Outstanding cinematography. Outstanding narration, research and storytelling. The visuals are spectacular. Beautiful shots of wonderful creatures going about their daily lives along with informative narration and innovation. If we all contribute and change our way of life to a more respectful and sustainable way, the oceans and the planet still will have a chance to survive for future generations to admire and appreciate.
Prepare to be amazed by the riches on display, from the always peerless narration by Sir David Attenborough to the ‘how did they do it?’ quality of the photography. To capture this footage takes incredible skill, planning and luck. That they could put together eight-plus hours of magnificent revelations is nothing short of astounding, but as usual this is par for the course for the BBC. However, where BP2 distinguishes itself from similar efforts offered by this leader in the nature documentary field is that they actually take a stand and offer a straightforward view of the challenges their subjects face, how we humans are solely responsible for them, and what we need to change before it’s too late. I appreciate the BBC owning this messaging instead of being neutral about the cause and effect of mankind on nature as they have been in the past. It’s still fairly non-judgmental, but it’s a refreshing nuance to see at long last.
Most beautiful nature show ever made. I could watch for hours!
Life changing. Brings tears to your eyes. A must see for every human being on planet earth!❤️
New Apple TV supports 4k, yet you don’t offer this in 4k????

This isn't MTV. BBC, stop hacking up the incredible cinematography of your film crews. The wave shots are the worst. Just when you're getting a sense of awe, it gets chopped off. Massively irritating and an insult to the work of the cinematographers. The people watching this aren't blighted by 3 second attention spans.
This was released in the UK on BBC iPlayer in stunning HDR 4k. Why is this not available to itunes in 4k HDR? It's only available in HD. Why is this??
