Co produced by BBC Worldwide and Greenlight Media, Deep Blue is an epic cinematic ‘roller coaster’ ride whose images will mesmerise viewers with their beauty and stun them with their grandeur. Intensifying the film’s impact is a new, full orchestral score composed specifically for Deep Blue by five-time Oscar© nominee George Fenton (Gandhi, Cry Freedom) and recorded by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra – their first ever recording of a film score. The film is narrated by acclaimed film and stage actor Michael Gambon. One of the most singular and comprehensive projects ever undertaken in the field of documentary filmmaking, Deep Blue plunges the audience into the spectacle of the seas and takes it on a journey from the shallowest coral reefs to the barren shores of the Antarctic, from the vast stretches of the open ocean to the nocturnal landscapes of the ocean’s deepest chasms. Director Alastair Fothergill comments: “We take you to a world you have never seen before, to what I believe is genuinely the last frontier on our planet.
