Hidden within the depths of our oceans are secrets about our past, our planet and life itself. At last, an international crack team of underwater explorers is ready to dive in — and discover them! This spectacular, surprising series combines archaeology, geology, marine biology and anthropology with all the energy and excitement of a good thriller. Each mission sees the experts living together on a dive boat, facing personal challenges and genuine jeopardy. Astonishing footage captures the full beauty of this alien world and video diaries vividly reflect the team's stresses, successes, disappointments and dangers. From discovering the truth behind rumours that the Mediterranean Sea has become a breeding ground for the Great White Shark, to exploring ancient wrecks that tell tales of piracy past and present, the team venture fearlessly into some of the planet's most challenging environments providing a vital and timely understanding of our oceans.
|1||VideoSea of Cortez||Over a year, Paul Rose, Philippe Cousteau Jr, Dr Lucy Blue and Tooni Mahto explore how a unique ocean paradise, home to the greatest variety of whales and dolphins in the world, is under threat. They dive stormy seas to investigate how a giant predator, the cannibalistic Humboldt squid, is invading this sea, and search for the threatened hammerhead shark. In an extraordinary encounter, the team carry out pioneering science on one of the largest carnivores on earth: the 20-metre-long sperm whale. They explore a sunken ship with a tragic human story, and search for evidence that the Sea of Cortez is still growing, they dive along part of the San Andreas fault line. The dive is above waters heated to near-boiling point by the furnace of the inner Earth.||58:54||£1.89||View In iTunes|

The team search for one of the ocean's most mysterious creatures, the seahorse, to see how the population is fairing amid increasing demand from the eastern medicine market. They dive in search of the sunken remains of a medieval village, dragged into the sea by a cyclone; and the team works with scientists on a pioneering experiment to see how these coastal waters could help to predict natural disasters.||58:56||£1.89||View In iTunes|

|8||VideoArctic||The Arctic Ocean may be the smallest and shallowest of the world’s great oceans, but it plays an unusually important role. Any changes here will have an enormous impact on the Earth’s oceans and on the planet’s climate. In one of the world’s most hostile environments, the team investigates how the Arctic is changing and the effect this may have on this ocean’s ecosystems and the rest of the world. Paul Rose, Philippe Cousteau Jr, Dr Lucy Blue and Tooni Mahto venture within 600 miles of the North Pole to explore a great mass of drifting ice, a solid seascape that is essential to keeping the Arctic Ocean cold and which helps regulate ocean currents and weather around the globe. It is known that the health and thickness of ice cover in the Arctic Ocean is diminishing. The team dives under the ice and takes measurements on top of the ice floe. The results are sent to NASA to help them discover how fast it is changing.||57:18||£1.89||View In iTunes|

The program is extremely interesting. Its just a shame that itunes have not titled it correctly. The Indian Ocean is actually the Atlantic Ocean and there is also an episode missing as the "in next weeks episode" do not match up Apart from that it is worth buying! :D
Brilliant BBC Programme, shame iTunes can't label them properly
I think you'll find that the Indian Ocean, (Episode 3) is actually the Atlantic Ocean episode as Indian Ocean is the 5th episode.
Great download,but could ITunes relable all downloads with right titles,surly this could be done.
