The UK & Eire arena tour is a live adaptation of a television story that began some 20 years ago when a team of wildlife filmmakers from the BBC’s Natural History Unit set out to make a television series on the world’s oceans, the breadth and scale of which had never been seen before. Broadcast in 2001, the multi award-winning The Blue Planet, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, cemented the Unit’s peerless reputation for underwater filming.
Now, a generation later, the Natural History Unit has once again dived deep into the blue underworld, providing the audience with a completely new perspective on our oceans, coasts and coral ecosystems - full of mystery, surprise, and startling revelations. With the help of groundbreaking advancements in research and technology, the BBC One landmark series has not only presented the viewer with spectacular images but the public reaction to the series has raised awareness of how fragile our planet and environment has become from plastic contaminants and demonstrated the power of television to make an impact on society. The live concert adaptation is an extension of that striking visual and environmental narrative.
