Oceans: Our Blue Planet
Presented by BBC Earth, Oceans: Our Blue Planet takes audiences on a global odyssey to explore the largest and least explored habitat on earth. New ocean science and technology has allowed us to go further into the unknown than we ever thought possible.
From the coastline to deeper, more mysterious worlds, the untold stories of the oceans' most astonishing creatures are revealed. In the warm coastal shallows, viewers meet surfing dolphins, and an ingenious tusk fish that uses a tool to crack open its food. In the enchanted sea-forests, a cunning octopus uses shells as armour from predators.
As we journey through our oceans, we share these extraordinary discoveries and uncover a spectacular world of life beneath the waves.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters
Following the global success of “Godzilla” and “Kong: Skull Island” comes the next chapter in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ cinematic Monsterverse: “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” an epic action adventure that pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history.
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
