[edit] Information

For more than fifty years Jacques Cousteau explored the Earth and its water system. Since 1943 when he and Emile Gagnan developed the first regulated compressed air breathing device for deep sea diving (the Aqualung), until his death in 1997, Captain Cousteau was a leading spokesman for the protection of the underwater world and the global environment. Born in France in 1910, Cousteau served in the French navy from 1930 until 1957 before resigning to become director of the Musee Oceanographique of Monaco, a post which he held until 1988. As well as his films he wrote over 50 books which have been published in more than a dozen languages. Cousteau first started filming in 1951, when in collaboration with Andre Laban, Cousteau perfected the first underwater camera equipment. With his first feature film, The Silent World in 1956 (directed by Louis Malle), Cousteau opened the eyes of the world to the beauties of the undersea world. From then until his death in 1997, Cousteau never ceased to travel the world aboard his ship the Calypso and latterly the Alycone, making films of his adventures and discoveries for audiences throughout the world. The films the team made constitute a unique record of the marine environment, introducing millions of people across the planet to the marvels of the undersea world and the importance of protecting it. This DVD series, filmed between 1977 and 1981, shows Calypso's search for the lost island of Atlantis and leads to a quest to save the Atlantic and Mediterranean seas and the Nile river from ecological disaster. It was an Odyssey worthy of the most imaginative mythological explorations, taking viewers from lost civilisations to new-found Greek relics, uncovering beautiful underwater sanctuaries and bizarre bioluminescent fish in the deepest, darkest and most silent recesses of the ocean.
