SYNOPSIS

Blue Planet II - Thursday October 10 at 7.30pm

Filmed over four years this series takes viewers on a magical adventure across the greatest, yet least known part of our planet – our oceans. Since Blue Planet aired in 2001, our understanding of life beneath the waves has been transformed. Travelling from the icy polar seas to the vibrant blues of the coral atolls, Blue Planet II shares astonishing new discoveries. Australian stories include the tusk fish, co-operative hunting between the Coral Groper and Octupus, spawning behaviour of Giant Cuttlefish and coral bleaching on the Great Barrier Reef.

Frozen Planet - Friday October 11 at 5pm

Embark on the trip of a lifetime, as the BBC’s acclaimed Natural History Unit takes you on a spectacular polar expedition into a breathtaking landscape most humans will never experience. Ambitious and epic in scale, this landmark series is the ultimate portrait of the great wildernesses of the Arctic and Antarctic before they change forever.

Planet Earth II - Saturday October 12 at 5pm

When Planet Earth was released it transformed how viewers saw their planet. It captivated a global audience of over half a billion people by giving them an unprecedented view of life on Earth. Ten years on, Planet Earth II revists this rich subject but with a new perspective, immersing audiences in the most spectacular landscapes and habitats on Earth and bringing them eye to eye with the animals that live there.

The Hunt - Sunday October 13 at 5pm

Predators face many challenges in their lives but the most defining is also the most difficult: catching their prey. Statistics support this claim – most hunts fail. Predators must not only overcome the significant defences of their prey but also the unique challenges of their habitats. How do you get close to your prey on the open plain, where there’s nowhere to hide?
