David Attenborough’s astonishing new series reveals rafts of sea otters, bird-eating fishes, surfing dolphins and much more. Blue Planet II that airs on BBC One on Sundays, is a highly anticipated sequel to the Emmy-winning and BBC’s Bafta-winning 2001 series about life below and above the ocean.
David Attenborough – A 91-year-old Wise Man
David Attenborough is 91-year-old and he is not giving up on providing us with such value that can’t be measured. Technology is advancing, and it helped David Attenborough to go even further, exploring the depths of the Blue Planet beneath us. He goes deep to see the new world that has never been seen before. Oceans are changing faster than ever. Understanding them has never been as important as now. Blue Planet II has more than four years in the making with 125 expeditions, 39 countries, and 6,000 hours of diving underwater. David Attenborough narrator of Blue Planet II manages to show life beneath the waves and the sheer beauty that has been hidden from our eyes.
It is quite clear that Blue Planet II is becoming a new jewel in the BBC Natural History Unit of wildlife documentaries and of BBC One TV Shows. David Attenborough spoke about how revolutionary new filming technologies provided the makers to “enter new worlds and shine a light on behaviours in ways that were impossible just a generation ago”. Blue Planet II will leave you always wanting for more. The power of nature, the dramatic life-struggles and the majestic footages. Don’s miss Blue Planet II. It is one of those shows that helps us to develop more as a human person by allowing us to see and understand something more than just us and our surrounding.
The New World – The Blue Planet II on BBC One
A lot of things that we saw have been seen for the first time. They are new even to science. A tusk fish employing an “anvil” to break open a clam has never been seen nor known off before. Science didn’t know about the giant wrasse that is changing sex from female to male. Furthermore, two different species talked. Dolphins and false killer whales met in a middle of the ocean to chitchat. After that, they went on a joint hunting expedition.
In South Africa, we witnessed how bottlenose dolphins surf waves just for fun. This is a clear sign of strong intelligence. Their intelligence was further backed during the filming of adult dolphins who were collectively teaching their calves a life lesson. The life lesson was how to rub up against a rare plant whose fronds are coated with a mucus and contain anti-inflammatory properties.
Giant trevallies in the lagoon of an Indian Ocean atoll want birds instead of tea. They are snatching terns’ in the mid-flight. And to a tern, trevally is the ultimate predator. The trevallies seem them flying above the surface from below. They calculate airspeed, altitude and trajectory and launches itself from the sea like a missile and grabs the poor bird in mid-air. Blue Planet II also provides a footage of a tern that somehow managed to snatch its life from the jaws of death and escape the surprisingly quick and precise trevally.
Mesmerizing footages of nature and the ecological warning
David Attenborough doesn’t only focus on wildlife. He manages to reveal the power, majesty and beauty of nature. The breaking waves in HD slow-motion sequences leave the viewers paralyzed with a strange feeling of serenity. We all know that we are constantly endangering our natural habitat – The mighty Earth. But it still seems that we are not fully capable of understanding the possible consequences. Blue Planet II will make us rethink our behaviours. One footage of a female walrus who is desperately seeking somewhere to land her exhausted calf for a rest will stay embedded in our minds.
She can’t find a spot on an ever-shrinking area of melting ice. She isn’t the only one, other walruses are also searching. This powerful scene serves as an opening warning from David Attenborough who says that “there has never been a more crucial time to reveal what is going on” inside the oceans.
Hopefully, Blue Planet II will raise some issues regarding the environment and spike a debate in order to change and remedy the situation before it becomes too late. David Attenborough is trying to tell us something, let’s listen to him.
“Creatures beyond imagination” and “a new understanding of life beneath the waves”
David Attenborough said that Blue Planet II will bring us “creatures beyond imagination” and “a new understanding of life beneath the waves”. He certainly delivered so far. Blue Planet II is a true revelation and a majestic and heart-breaking drama of the ocean life.
Just look at the metre-long and terrifyingly fast sea bed-dwelling predator now known as the Bobbit worm. David Attenborough described the creature as a “giant carnivorous worm with jaws as sharp as daggers.”
David Attenborough said the viewers that the worm, seen in Blue Planet II, “has an ancestry that stretches back more than 400 million years.” The Bobbit is around a metre long on average, however, they can reach up to 3 metres in length. They conceal their body in the sea-bed and wait with their head either at ground level or slightly above the bed. It snatched fish at great speed with its sharp jaws that as Dr Terry Gosliner said: “spring shut like a bear trap”. The prey is dragged underground. Thankfully, I am not a fish.
