The First episode in the series, The Great Barrier Reef with David Attenborough. Back in 1957 David made his first trip to this natural wonder of the world which is considered by many to be the most beautiful of them all. The scale is grand and when he saw it he thought that it would probably last forever. However in the last 50 years it has been dying and a fantastic rate.
In this documentary David takes a look at what is happening to the coral and reveals what amazing techniques scientists are developing to save the reefs. He also makes the deepest dive in the area to explore its farthest reaches of this vital ecosystem.
