When Judge David Johnson goes for a swim after a satisfying hoagie lunch he is a ocean giant.
The fascinating lives of whales and dolphins.
BBC Earth and PBS Nature join forces to deliver Ocean Giants three episodes and 179 minutes worth of aquatic fun, looking at two of the most interesting sea-dwelling organisms this side of sharks and sea anemones.
Renowned cameramen Doug Allan and Didier Noirto strap waterproof wrappings on their cameras and head for the high seas to capture some epic fin footage. Their journeys offer sweet, sweet eye candy, and throw in liberal amounts of marine learning. The audience gets an up-close-and-personal look at these majestic animals and how they operate in their underwater society.
Three parts to this release:
Part One: Giant Lives
Part Two: Deep Thinkers
Part Three: Voices of the Sea
Good, seafaring adventure all around, examining the lives and times of the some of the most compelling beasties nature has to offer. The combination of genuinely interesting facts and storytelling with eye-popping visuals adds up to yet another winning outing by the pros at Nature and BBC.
The DVD: a very solid 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer, Dolby 2.0 stereo, and—surprise! A Blu-ray version is included in this set!
Not Guilty. Whales and dolphins finally get their due.
