Atlantic
The raw power and spectacular beauty of the Atlantic are captured in this awe-inspiring story of the wildest ocean on Earth. The dramatic three-part series takes you on a journey across thousands of windswept kilometres, from the North Atlantic where giant turtles chase monstrous jellyfish, and fishermen battle for survival in mountainous seas, to the Saharan coast of Africa - the spawning ground for terrifying hurricanes that rip westward to the Caribbean - and the volcanic undersea ridges of the South Atlantic, whose nutrient-rich upwellings create profusions of life. Discover the mysteries of the Atlantic in all its moods and learn about the animals and people whose lives are shaped by its rhythms.
