Proteus

For the 19th century, the world beneath the sea played much the same role that outer space played for the 20th. Twenty years in the making and based on images of 19th century painters, photographers, and scientific illustrators, Proteus brings these undersea worlds to life in a wonderfully unique film. The central figure of Proteus is biologist and artist Ernst Haeckel. As a young man, Haeckel was torn between science and art, materialism and religion, inner and outer worlds. Through his discoveries beneath the sea, Haeckel reconciled these dualities, bringing them together in an almost mystical vision. His work profoundly influenced not only biology but Art Nouveau and Surrealism, Sigmund Freud and D.H. Lawrence, Vladimir Lenin and Thomas Edison. The key to Haeckel's vision was a ti [...]

Galapagos

Situated at the confluence of major currents, the Galapagos Islands are not tropical - in fact they are cold. Reefs were only discovered here in 1975. With the help of a local guide, the team battles rough seas and cold water. They discover some flourishing reefs at Darwin Island and, further south, a natural laboratory to test the future of what reefs might expect in just a few decades.

Great Barrier Reef

The team settles in for a month on the Great Barrier Reef, the largest reef in the world. One scientist is studying sharks and, in a flashback we visit French Polynesia where sharks abound and the team films their natural feeding behaviors for the first time ever. Back on the GBR, the scientists explore the northern reef, which until recently was the healthiest part. The program concludes with new footage of the 2016 bleaching and severe die-off among these corals.

Can We Save the Reef?

Off Australia's northeast coast lies a wonder of the world; a living structure so big it can be seen from space, more intricate and complex than any city, and so diverse it hosts a third of all fish species in Australia. This is the Great Barrier Reef: 2,600km of coral reefs, lagoons, islands, and deep channels - a living fortress that meets the relentless power of the sea head-on, and protects Australia's coast. The Great Barrier Reef as we know it - 8,000 years old and home to over 2,000 marine species - is dying in our lifetime. This is the epic story of scientists who are racing to understand our greatest natural wonder, and employing bold new science in an attempt to save it.
