Sixteen years ago, the BBC television series The Blue Planet forever raised the bar for natural hisory broadcasting, introducing a bold, cinematic view of our world and bringing the viewer closer to nature's grandeur than ever before. The accompanying book beautifully mirrored the programme's power and was a much-yearned for bestseller of that year.
Now the spectacle returns with Blue Planet II, the magnificent new volume to accompany the BBC's extraordinary successor to the original series. Cutting edge technology and unparalleled field experience combine to deliver an astonishing panorama of a hidden world.
Sporting a foreword by David Attenborough, Blue Planet II brims with behind-the-scenes accounts from both scientists and crew, drawn from five years of extraordinary film-making.
