Blu-ray
2009
1 available of 1 items

Explores the sheer scale and majesty of the largest ocean on Earth, the isolation of its islands, the extraordinary journeys wildlife and humans have gone through to reach these specks of land, and what happened to both after their arrival. This film captures the amazing natural sights of the region and its people: from erupting undersea volcanoes to jeweled tropical reefs; from tiger sharks catching albatross chicks to giant crabs opening coconuts; from the Solomon islanders who fish with spider webs and kits to the Pentecost land divers who leap from 25-meter wooden scaffolds.
