Episode THREE CORAL REEFS

TV & Satellite Week - - This Week On Tv -

CORAL REEFS COM­PRISE 0.1 per cent of the ocean’s sur­face area but are home to a quar­ter of all marine species. We get to see a clown­fish seek­ing the per­fect nest and coral groupers who hunt with oc­to­pus. Us­ing time-lapse, cam­eras also cap­ture how coral grows and dies.

‘In Bor­neo, we see tur­tles re­lax while lit­tle fish pick off par­a­sites and dead skin,’ says At­ten­bor­ough. ‘One tur­tle sits back and shuts its eye while a lit­tle cleaner fish works over it to re­move things. It’s like it is chill­ing out with a fa­cial.’
