Deep Ocean: The Lost World of the Pacific

An underwater adventure in search of living fossils

The island of New Guinea in the Pacific Ocean sits on the equator, where immediately next to a richly-colored coral reef, a sharp underwater cliff drops 1,000 meters. A long-awaited exploration into the little-known depths of this tropical sea is finally about to start. NHK has teamed up with eminent marine biologist Mark Erdmann, the man who discovered the coelacanth in Indonesia. A spherical transparent submarine is used as the team encounters true living fossils, one after another. During their last dive, in the darkest depths of caves in the deep-sea cliff, the crew encounters a huge, unknown exotic fish.
