Program 1: Under Antarctic Ice – Beneath the surface of stunningly cold water, an abundance of lifeforms and icescapes can be found. Academy Award-winner Hilary Swank narrates encounters with jellyfish that have thirty-foot long tentacles, sponges the size of large mammals, killer whales, and more in this fascinating look at what lies in the ocean depths beneath the surface of one of the coldest continents on Earth.
Program 2: Encountering Sea Monsters – Enter the gloomy green ocean depths with deep-sea cameraman Bob Cranston to discover fantastic worlds and the beautiful but deadly creatures that inhabit them. Nothing in science fiction can prepare you for a creature with a beak like a parrot, no bones in its body, three hearts, blue blood, skin that can change colors, and arms growing out of its lips! Cranston enlists the help of scientists and experts to enter the world of squid and octopus, where cannibalism is practiced daily, mating can involve amputation, trickery is everywhere, and size means everything and nothing. Tim Matheson (Animal House) narrates this tense and thrilling program.
