[edit] Information

Water Life Through spectacular photography and featuring an award winning soundtrack, Water Life captures extraordinary locations and intimate animal behaviour never before seen on film. Two years in the making, this groundbreaking series takes viewers on an unprecedented visual journey to aquatic ecosystems on five continents to reveal how water shapes and sculpts the landscape and provides food and refuge for an astonishing array of species. From the biggest whales to the most insignificant mosquitoes, every living being depends on the water and is linked to this liquid in a special way for their survival. But, water is not just there for animal species, it also makes possible vast landscapes such as caverns, sea beds, glaciers and valleys. Each chapter of Water life explores a different ecosystem as we discover the characteristics of water that make life possible on the planet, and the different ways that the animals and plants have adapted to this environment. Follow the water in all of its manifestations, discovering the things that make it so fundamental to life, and uncover a fascinating and gripping world. From the fountains near our houses to the vast sea depths or the fast flowing rivers, it is close to the water that we find the most wild and diverse nature. Thanks to this incredible documentary series, we will learn some of the secrets that make water the real pool of life. If you enjoyed the BBC's "The Blue Planet", than I would strongly recommend you investigate Water Life which is equally as good. From exceptional narration to some wonderful photography that truly enhances the entire experience. This is a professional and well made documentary from start to finish and rarely skips a heart bit as we see all the amazing links to water and the life it has spawned.

[edit] Disc 1: A World of Water

Dive into the Blue Planet and discover amazing and diverse worlds brimming with colour and life. From tropical rainforests to coral reefs, miraculous and mysterious water holds the secrets to life on Earth in every drop.
Also includes the programs The Wandering Water, Where Water is Born, Liquid Roads and The Quiet Flow

[edit] Disc 2: Soup of Life

Freshwater ecosystems barely make up one percent of the earth's surface, but 40 percent of the world species live here. There is non-stop drama in the calm and dense waters of the wetlands, beginning with algae that are the basis for a remarkably active food chain.
Also includes the programs Dark Water, Useful Water, Water's Skin and Protective Water

[edit] Disc 3: Jungle Water

Rainforests are as much a mystery as the ocean depths. Explore the most fertile, varied, and surprising ecosystem on the planet, home to plants and animals still unknown to us. What makes the rainforest so unique? The answer is often water!
Also includes the programs Borrowed Water, Fleeting Water and Salt Forests

[edit] Disc 4: Extreme Water

Salt mines, salt flats, and salt marshes would seem to be inhospitable, but these strange and solitary places with their otherworldly landscapes are home to genuinely tough creatures that have adapted to living in water with high levels of salinity.
Also includes the programs Kingdom of Ties, The Frontier of the Sea and On the Seaside

[edit] Disc 5: The Big Blue

The open sea is the largest ecosystem, and also the least known. It would take up to ten centuries of intensive work to inventory the marine species to be found here. Whales, sharks, jellyfish, and migrating sea turtles are just some of the awe-inspiring creatures featured in this compelling program.
Also includes the programs Under the Sea, In Sight of the Coast and The Underwater City

[edit] Disc 6: Water's Pulse

Pollution, uncontrolled fishing, and other factors are having a devastating impact on ecosystems. As rainforests, rivers, seas, and wetlands are imperilled, so is the very existence of the species that inhabit them.
Also includes the programs Uncertain Water, Water's Voices and Making of
