With over 200 breath-taking photographs and stills from the BBC Natural History Unit’s spectacular footage, each chapter of Blue Planet II brings to life a different habitat of the oceanic world.
Voyages of migration show how each of the oceans on our planet are connected; coral reefs and arctic ice communities are revealed as thriving underwater cities; while shorelines throw up continual challenges to those living there or passing through. The science and technology behind the making of the programme is explained throughout the book: how the team captured these amazing stories — many of them filmed for the first time — and what the future holds for marine life based on their discoveries.
The book was a team effort, compiled from the research of the Blue Planet II production team, in collaboration with marine biologists and oceanographic scientists and illustrated by the worlds best wildlife photographers.
The stories were developed and curated by Mark Brownlow and James Honeyborne, under the guidance of a veteran writer of natural history, Michael Bright. The foreword is by Sir David Attenborough.
