- Season 1 Episode 3: Voices of the Sea
The documentary explores the vocal ranges of marine mammals. Sperm whales produce clicks to locate giant squid two miles beneath the ocean surface, and narwhals use a similar technique to find breathing holes in Arctic ice floes. Bottlenose dolphins communicate with fishermen in Brazil, humpbacks offer haunting operatic performances and boto dolphins create bat-like ultrasonic calls to help find fish in the murky Amazon River. Narrated by Stephen Fry
- Season 1 Episode 2: Deep Thinkers
The documentary explores the intelligence of marine mammals, discovering just how smart whales and dolphins really are. Scientist Denise Herzing talks about the development of a two-way communication system between dolphins and humans in the Bahamas, while in Western Australia the creatures are filmed using a range of survival skills. In Mexico, grey whales seemingly empathise with humans, while the humpbacks of Alaska pool their talents to increase hunting success. Narrated by Stephen Fry
