Editorial Reviews

Three-quarters of Earth is an alien world, lying beneath the surface of the oceans. And although it encompasses over half of the world’s species, we know more about the surface of Mars than the bottom of the ocean. It’s only recently that science has penetrated this world, revealing extraordinary life forms and vast sweeping landscapes on a scale that defies imagination.
If we could remove the water, what would we see? Using CGI animation, based on the latest scientific research, Drain the Ocean explores one of Earth’s last great frontiers as never before—revealing unimaginable landscapes more dramatic than anything on dry land.

Customer Reviews

This is an amazing well thought out documentary.

To look down in one segment and see an aircraft flying along the sheer drop to the ocean floor for what seems miles and miles is fantastic!

This program is the use of CGI at its finest; not only the hear the description, but to see the continental shelf, the deeps of the Pacific from the air, in almost 3D quality is amazing. To look down in one segment and see an aircraft flying along the sheer drop to the ocean floor for what seems miles and miles is fantastic!

Saw this on cable and had to order. Immagine the oceans are gone and then study the earth. It makes the geology of the planet more complete and allows a perspective that is very satisfying.

Excellent program. You cannot go wrong.

I watch a lot of nature documentaries. This is one of the best. What it conveys is the enormous depth of the underwater landscapes. The computer animation is amazing. An important point to keep in mind is that we still have a lot to learn about the deep sections of the ocean.

As an educator, I am always searching for new visuals. My students really responded well to this dvd and were engaged watching it. It explains plate tectonics in a big picture sense which helped many of the students. I am very pleased with this purchase.

National Geographic revolutionizes the perception that the public had about the oceans, until the release of this documentary. Beautiful photography, interviews with scientists/explorers, and stunning computer-generated imagery, render some justice to a world that still needs to deliver many secrets to humanity. Hopefully, humanity will learn from history, geology, and this media production, how many benefits it has to gain from managing the resources of the oceans responsibly.

As the oceans are peeled away like layers of an an onion and using real and computer generated data, you can see what is under the sea. And to gain a better perspective of the undersea, unseen world, portions are compared to familiar landmarks such as the Grand Canyon.

Enlightening, educational and entertaining, this is a great work by National Geographic.

National Geographic's "Drain The Ocean" is an outstanding documentary! As a science buff, I never saw anything like it before. For the first time, computer images show you what the earth would like if there were no oceans. The computer images look real; for instance, the scientists walking around the famous "smokers" or standing on the edge of a cliff, hundreds of feet down below the shoreline and a plane flying thousands of feet even further! The science involved in this is remarkable documentary gives you a full love and appreciation of our oceans, for without them, life on Earth would not be at least desirable. Drain The Ocean should be in everyone's library.

An excellent video about the ocean and what it encompasses. A great video for students and adults alike. Made me want to learn more about our lovely planet's oceans.
