Mountains of the Deep

Documentary on the Atlantic Ocean. In the South Atlantic, chains of extraordinary islands are packed with huge pods of dolphins and massive penguin colonies.

In the vast South Atlantic, huge pods of dolphins, massive penguin colonies and the largest gathering of marine mammals on earth pack chains of extraordinary islands, created by powerful volcanic forces far below them. Nutrient-rich upwellings create profusions of life in some areas, whilst extreme isolation and abyssal depths host a world of bizarre creatures in others.
