Very well-done, fascinating documentary about the many Whale and the Dolphin species .. Lots and lots of the fascinating, researched information, coming right from the scientists working with them, etc..(One small omission: they didn't explain how some of the whales got their intriguing names)..Each Species of the whale has a different social system and behaviour, and different ways of finding a mate, etc.. Fascinating documentary! Wonderful scenery of tropics and the far north...with divers brazenly, and courageously, trying to cope with the extremes of nature, and various surprizing behaviours of the whales! I highly recommend this documentary!

Exceptional collection on whales and dolphins. In places all over the world, camera crews and experts follow the animals, exploring their behavior, their intelligence, and their social structure. The camera work below and above water is spectacular, and the various species are magnificent to behold. Highly recommended.
