The South Pacific is the greatest ocean on Earth. It is still relatively healthy and teeming with fish, but it is a fragile paradise.
Flightless parrots, burrowing bats, giant skinks and kangaroos in trees… On the isolated islands of the South Pacific, the wildlife has evolved in extraordinary ways.
Witness the birth, growth and death of an island in the greatest ocean on Earth. With unforgettable images of an erupting underwater volcano, rivers of lava exploding below the waves, and roads and houses buried by molten rivers of rock.
Much of this remote, blue wilderness is a marine desert. Using the greatest shipwreck story of all time – an event that inspired Moby Dick – the huge challenges of survival in this seemingly endless blue ocean are revealed.
