Deep Blue is a [kinda] documentary originally produced for the British TV series The Blue Planet.

Beautiful, beautiful shots of the oceans and it's inhabitants. Amazing to see a movie-screen sized albatros head or polar bear profile. Great shots of fish and corals and sharks and whales and worms and crabs and seals and dolphins and penguins and.. great close ups, great macro shots, fabulous undersea panoramas, amazing waves, water water beautiful water.

But the music was all a bit much - a bit too grand and old fashioned. I knew before going in the narration was going to be light on facts and concentrating more of the "emotion of the ocean" but after a short period of time it was facts I wanted. Where is David Attenborough when you need him?
