Great Ocean Adventures: From the five and Animal Planet Series in association with Scubazoo.
The filming of the television series Great Ocean Adventures was an extremely ambitious undertaking, with a crew of five on a shoestring budget undertaking a complete circumnavigation of the globe, seeking out encounters with the iconic and mysterious giant animals of the world's oceans.
The team encountered killer whales, giant octopus, ferocious Humboldt squid, beluga whales, thresher sharks, ocean sunfish, humpback whales, and basking sharks. During the course of their extraordinary journey they were perpetually tired, frequently frightened, occasionally ill, and often foul smelling. Nonetheless the resultant series offered a glimpse into a world far off the beaten track, and was aired on Channel 5 in Spring 2007 to tremendous reviews.
Great Ocean Adventures is illustrated throughout by stunning images from the Scubazoo cameramen in the team, as well as a number of other shots from award-winning photographers, several of whom accompanied the team at various stages of the trip.
This book tells the story behind the filming of Great Ocean Adventures, to reveal the reality of a film crew on the road, the ups and downs of on their remarkable journey.
