- The NHK team that captured the world's first footage of a live giant squid is going on a new deep-sea adventure. The destination is an illuminating "twilight zone" in a huge submarine canyon in Monterey Bay, North America.
Equipped with a 4K camera system designed by NHK specifically for deep sea filming on state-of-the-art submarines, the crew encounters a world of countless exotic creatures including sparkling jellyfish, and deep-sea fish that emit flashes.
This is the world's first quest to film bioluminescent creatures in their natural environment in the deep fathom of our oceans. Observe the amazing mystery of these enlightening life forms that have survived harsh pitch-black environments, where the concept of "sunlight" does not exist.
Narrated by renowned former BBC wildlife program producer Sir David Attenborough.
