What a truly wonderful world we live in. A tool using fish! Who would of thought it? Dolphins and whales hanging out together and hunting? I think I watched the whole program with my mouth open in awe.

It was a very interesting programme and amazing at times. Brilliantly filmed.

Its an amazing program made by very gifted and dedicated photographers. Almost worth the license fee on its own, in my opinion.

That fish that jumped out of the sea to catch a bird and the one that changed sex!

Difficult to believe that it could be an improvement on Blue Planet 1 but it most certainly was.

All the new technology has made such a difference to what we can see.

I was sad to see the Walrus's having a hard time find somewhere to rest with their calves, they looked to be such good and loving mothers. Surely its not beyond us to make some kind of rafts that could replace the ice burgs they usually rest on?

Brilliant programme.

Enjoyed watching and am looking forward to seeing next weeks episode when they explore the deep!

I have not seen the new prog, but I have BP 1 on DVD and have watched it over and over, sometimes fast forwarding and rewinding special things to see again and hear David's explanations. This planet is truly amazing and BP 1 barely scratched the surface - but what saddens me is what us humans are doing to this wonderful place - and I firmly believe that the cure to all our ailments are here for us to find.

We have fish living on land and birds living in the sea, the mind boggles, what a programme.

Truly amazing, and what talented lucky cameramen too.

The Octopus chasing the Crabs was another wow moment.

Funnily enough Phoenix I am seriously thinking about getting a tv license just so I can watch Blue Planet 1 & 2

OnlineMSE  Male  Essex 4-Dec-2017 20:23 Message #4707118
You could just get series 1 & 2 on DVD for £25 from Amazon (& probably get it for less after Crimbo).
Or the recently released Collection (1&2) on Blu-Ray for the same price.

Better still, one for the recorder, Blue Planet Series 1 is being repeated from the start on
BBC2 on Monday 11th @ 17.05
Nigel_In_Devon  Male  Devon 9-Dec-2017 11:13 Message #4707381
Yeah, but not having a licence prevents that! :-(
OnlineMSE  Male  Essex 9-Dec-2017 18:39 Message #4707399
Yes but then surely since September 2016, by law, you need a tv licence to watch the BBC i-player too.
Hierophant  Male  East Anglia 9-Dec-2017 19:16 Message #4707400
Yeah and you have to sign up in order to use it...
Nigel_In_Devon  Male  Devon 9-Dec-2017 19:53 Message #4707403
Exactly OnlineMSE, hence why I said I am extremely tempted to get a licence again!
Siesta09  Female  Essex 9-Dec-2017 22:12 Message #4707406
absolutely love Blue Planet - I too watch it with my mouth open in total awe. This weeks episode apparently depicts how we are damaging our oceans (mainly by the amount of plastic now found in our seas I imagine) I think its going to be very emotional. The book is most definitely on my Christmas wish list!!

It's quite common for fish to change sex. Anemonefish are born hermaphrodites... all male except the largest in the school being the female. If the female dies the most dominant male changes sex. Any of my fb friends will have seen that I have a breeding pair that have taken up residence in a terracotta plant pot.
Anthias are another that changes sex. In their case it's the dominant female that changes sex and becomes a male. Watch it guys many species of fish in the ocean the female is bigger than the male.
