5 x 60 minutes
The Pacific Ocean covers one third of the world’s surface. It is larger than all Earth’s land combined, holds half our water and hides the deepest corners of our planet. It is a place where huge and iconic, rare and dazzling creatures live – and where unknown animals lurk, yet to be discovered. Filmed in cinematic 4K, "Big Pacific" breaks the boundaries between land and sea in a way never seen before. The series moves throughout the Pacific Ocean to present a broad range of locations, species, natural phenomena and behaviours. Each episode focuses on an iconic characteristic of the Pacific; Passionate, Voracious, Violent and Mysterious, to weave stories that illustrate the many faces of the Pacific Ocean.
