Shot in glorious High Definition, DISCOVER PLANET OCEAN explores the Pacific coast of Baja California, one of the most beautiful regions of Mexico—and one of the most extraordinary diverse marine ecosystems on the planet. The series covers a lot of ground (and cubic feet of water), ranging across the entire 1,000-mile peninsula. Your guide on this extraordinary voyage of discovery—marine journalist Masakazu Nagata—hits all the area's high spots, including coral reefs and its twin UNESCO World Heritage sites (the rock paintings at Pintada and the Vizaino Whale Sanctuary). However, the 13-episode series provides more than enough scope for a sustained investigation of the region's less publicized aspects–including the daily workings of a typical fishing village. For the people in Baja California, the Ocean is more than just a source of wonder and fear (the Great White Shark is a frequent visitor) — it is the key to economic survival. DISCOVER PLANET OCEAN brings you all of these elements together in order to provide you with a rich portrait of life above and beneath the waves.
