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.
