the landscape and provides food and refuge for an astonishing array of species. This epic series
tells water's story as never before to engage viewers in vital discussions about how water must
be conserved and preserved.
A World of Water
Dive into the Blue Planet and discover amazing and diverse worlds brimming with color and life. From tropical rainforests to coral reefs, miraculous and mysterious water holds the secrets to life on Earth in every drop.
Also includes the programs The Wandering Water, Where Water is Born, Liquid Roads and The Quiet Flow
Soup of Life
Freshwater ecosystems barely make up one percent of the earth's surface, but 40 percent of the world species live here. There is non-stop drama in the calm and dense waters of the wetlands, beginning with algae that are the basis for a remarkably active food chain.
Also includes the programs Dark Water, Useful Water, Water's Skin and Protective Water
Rainforests are as much a mystery as the ocean depths. Explore the most fertile, varied, and surprising ecosystem on the planet, home to plants and animals still unknown to us. What makes the rainforest so unique? The answer is often water!
Also includes the programs Borrowed Water, Fleeting Water and Salt Forests

Also includes the programs Kingdom of Ties, The Frontier of the Sea and On the Seaside
The Big Blue
The open sea is the largest ecosystem, and also the least known. It would take up to ten centuries of intensive work to inventory the marine species to be found here. Whales, sharks, jellyfish, and migrating sea turtles are just some of the awe-inspiring creatures featured in this compelling program.
Also includes the programs Under the Sea, In Sight of the Coast and The Underwater City
Water s Pulse
Pollution, uncontrolled fishing, and other factors are having a devastating impact on ecosystems. As rainforests, rivers, seas, and wetlands are imperiled, so is the very existence of the species that inhabit them.
