This disc offers a pair of episodes from a documentary series about aquatic environments and their citizens. Both episodes, "Tidal Seas" and "Coasts," are presented in standard full-frame transfers. The English soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. There are no subtitles, but the soundtracks are closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include additional facts, still photo galleries, trailers, and a making-of featurette. This is an excellent disc for those with an interest in the topic, as well as for teachers. The shows are narrated by David Attenborough.

The two episodes cover the most diverse and challenging of marine environments the sea shore.
Tidal Seas focuses on the crustaceans - shrimp and crabs - while Coasts ranges from the Galapagos to the cold seas of Russia where the real life battle between elephant seals and their killer whale predators is on full display.
Unreservedly recommended for anyone interested in the natural history of the world's oceans
