Oceans by Jacques Perrin( Visual )

"Nearly three quarters of the Earth's surface is covered by water and Oceans (from Disneynature, the studio that presented the record-breaking film Earth) boldly chronicles the mysteries that lie beneath. Directors Jacques Perrin and Jacques Cluzaud dive deep into the very waters that sustain all of mankind, exploring the harsh reality and the amazing creatures that live within. Narrated by Pierce Brosnan and featuring spectacular never-before-seen imagery captured by the latest underwater technologies, Oceans offers an unprecedented and awe-inspiring look beneath the seas. Shot over four years, Oceans is part thriller and part meditation on the vanishing wonders of the aquatic world. It's a powerful celebration of our underwater world; a world that requires our attention. Visually spectacular yet with a salient eco-message, it will mesmerise and educate in equal measure".--Cover
