'The Blue Planet: Seas of Life' Announced for Blu-ray

Posted Fri Feb 8, 2013 at 08:00 AM PST by

The 2002 documentary series narrated by Sir David Attenborough is bound for Blu-ray in April.

In an early announcement to retailers, BBC says 'The Blue Planet: Seas of Life' will be available on Blu-ray on April 9.

'The Blue Planet: Seas of Life' is the definitive natural history of the world's oceans, exploring everything from the popular shores and teeming shallows to the mysterious ocean depths. Sea birds and crustaceans inhabit the no-man's-land between earth and sea; sharks bask in the shallows, waiting for prey; strange, flower-like anemones bloom in the coral reefs; while in the deep canyons of the oceans, weird creatures with huge jaws wait for something to sink down from the sunlit world. It's a journey that gets stranger and more awe-inspiring as it goes along.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include: Interviews, Ten 10-minute "Making Of" Mini-Episodes, and Deep Trouble: For years, man has used the oceans as a source of life, food and riches. Now the oceans have been put under such intolerable strain that we may be about to lose this valuable asset. Deep Trouble looks at the impact man has had on the ecology of the oceans.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is still undetermined at this time.
