This landmark series explores the sheer scale and majesty of the largest ocean on Earth, the isolation of its islands, the extraordinary journeys wildlife and humans have gone through to reach these specks of land, and what happened to both after their arrival. Unimaginably vast, the Pacific is 99% water and only 1% land. Witness flesh-eating caterpillars, giant crabs capable of opening coconuts, geckos that can breed without any need of a male, frogs that have never been tadpoles... Beyond clichéd images of swaying palms and idyllic beaches, this is the real, immense and surprising South Pacific.

  • Best Nature Documentary of All Time

    By Adam P
    Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the lack of the Discovery Channel version called "Wild Pacific" narrated by Mike Rowe. The story telling was worlds better in that version than it is in this BBC version. I'm disappointed I can't buy it anywhere.
  • Sensational South Pacific!!!

    By AussieYank
    This is truely one the best nature documentaries I have seen. I just finished it while on a visit to the French Polynesian Islands. Amazing videos both on land and sea that make this a must see! Well done, BBC.
  • A BBC Production with no equal!

    One of the finest documentaries on the Pacific ocean ever done. From opening frames to its seamless soundtrack and foley so real, you’d swear you’re under water yourself, this ranks right up there among the finest nature documentary documentaries I’ve ever seen! I cannot recommend this enough. 10 stars!!
