Blue Planet II

Daily Mail Weekend Magazine - - YOUR TV WEEK - Mike Mul­vi­hill

Four years in the mak­ing, this land­mark new se­ries is yet an­other tri­umph for the BBC Nat­u­ral His­tory Unit. Six­teen years af­ter the first Blue Planet, the team are back to ex­plore the wide va­ri­ety of life that lives be­low the water – in­clud­ing those won­der­ful bot­tlenose dol­phins (above) – with new div­ing and cam­era tech­nol­ogy al­low­ing them to get closer and go deeper than ever be­fore. As you would ex­pect, the im­ages are mind-blow­ing, the wildlife amaz­ing and the un­der­wa­ter sto­ries com­pelling. How­ever, what’s dif­fer­ent this time is the rather som­bre tone of David At­ten­bor­ough’s nar­ra­tion, which high­lights the dev­as­tat­ing im­pact that man’s ac­tions are hav­ing on th­ese frag­ile ecosys­tems (see left). To­mor­row, 8pm, BBC1.
