The Blue Planet

Five years in the making, the Mammoth series looks at the rich tapestry of life in the world's oceans. Blue whales – whose migration routes were previously unknown – were located by air after some animals had been given temporary radio tags. The camera team spent three years on standby, using a microlight to land on the water nearby when they finally caught up with the creatures in the Gulf of California. The open ocean proved more complex, and over 400 days were spent in often unsuccessful filming trips. After six weeks, the crew chanced upon a school of spinner dolphins, leading them to a shoal of tuna. Off Mexico, the behavior of a flock of frigatebirds guided the camera operators to a group of sailfish and marlin: the fastest inhabitants of the sea. Near the coast of Natal in South Africa, the team spent two seasons attempting to film the annual sardine run, a massive congregation of predators, such as sharks and dolphins, that assembles to feast on the migrating fish by corralling them into "bait balls." Meanwhile, an orca was documented attacking gray whales and killing a calf. In Monterey BayFilming in the deep ocean required the use of special submersibles. One of them enabled the crew to dive over a mile into the San Diego trench, where the carcass of a 40-ton gray whale had been placed to attract a large variety of scavengers.
