Summary: With never-before-seen HD footage, this four-part documentary series from The Nature of Things dives into the world's vast interconnected ocean ecosystem - telling the story from its turbulent birth to its threatened future.
As technology improves, scientists are descending deeper and deeper into the planet's last frontier. Our modern-day explorers are in a race to map and observe the ocean's depths before human appetites and reckless exploitation destroy its undiscovered wonders. Mysteries of the Deep joins a team of scientists, ranging from biologists to volcanologists, on an international expedition to the Mariana Arc, on the Pacific Rim of Fire. Each day they make new discoveries about outlandish deep-sea dwellers and dramatic underwater volcanoes. But even as scientists catalog these new findings, industrial fisheries are also delving further into deep waters in an attempt to replace diminishing fish stocks along the coasts. Can technology help us understand this little-known world before it's altered forever? - Docuseek2 website.
"Episode Three ... takes us to the most beguiling parts of the sea, the very depths that we know so little about. As we improve our technological prowess, we are venturing deeper and deeper into the planet?s last frontier ... We join a team of scientists, ranging from biologists to vulcanologists, on an international expedition as they return to the Mariana Arc, on the Pacific Rim of Fire ... Each day they make new discoveries about the outlandish deep-sea dwellers they find here. But at the same time that we begin to unravel their mysteries we're also mining the sea of many species. Finally Mysteries of the Deep asks the question: can cutting-edge technologies allow us to truly experience, for the first time, the three-dimensional world of the deep ocean?"-- One Ocean series website.
