The Big Blue

Synopsis
Journey to Australia's southern ocean and uncover one of its best-kept secrets -- a natural phenomenon called the "Bonney Upwelling" that sparks a feeding frenzy all the way up the food chain to the planet's largest living creature, the Blue Whale. With a heart the size of a Volkswagen, a tongue that weighs more than an elephant and a mouth big enough to capture 50 tons of sea water, a feeding Blue Whale is a sight to behold. Watching a herd of 30 of them swimming is an extraordinary experience. Filmed from above, on and under the sea, this documentary captures for the first time the extraordinary spectacle of this unique event.
