Planet Earth

Series 1 Episode 11: Ocean Deep

David Attenborough takes a look at life deep undersea. A 30-tonne whale shark gorges on a school of fish and a unique overhead camera reveals the speed of common dolphins. Descending into the abyss, deep sea octopus fly with wings and vampire squid use bioluminescence to create a colour display. Time-lapse footage from 2,000m down captures eels, crabs and giant isopods eating.
