The voice of David Attenborough will once again lead the project and this time, they'll explore our two seas.
Blue Planet is an exhilarating Planet Earth-esque documentary series created by the BBC and narrated and presented by naturalist Sir David Attenborough, whose voice alone will make anyone want to tune in.
Exploring the wonders of the deep oceans, and the mysteries of the sea, the series used cutting edge technology, utilising the latest filmography techniques to capture never before seen footage of marine wildlife in their natural habitat.
After a flurry of awards, from Emmys to BAFTAs, for the wildly successful eight-part original series, the creators decided to commission a seven-part sequel, which is set to have Egypt’s deep blue waters shown to a worldwide audience.
With one of very few countries with access to two seas, and some of the best deep diving spots on the planet, as well as beautiful coral reefs, we think it’s about time! The series debuts on October 29.
