Genius Sea Hunters 3x52' & 1x52' 4K by Jérôme Julienne & John Jackson

Synopsis

We are only on the fringes of understanding how marine mammals hunt. We know they develop methods that are surprisingly sophisticated, and that leave scientists in awe with each new discovery.

How do animals of the same species come up with such astoundingly unique methods to find and kill their prey?

Thanks to some cutting-edge drone technology and a unique viewpoint from the sky, discover the wealth of tricks and tactics used by marine wildlife. Using 30% aerial footage from drones, 30% RED underwater footage, 20% "aero- submarine" footage and 20% regular 4K footage, this series offers an entirely new spectacle.

From the humpback whale in Alaska’s Glacier Bay trapping a school of sardines to the Patagonian orcas landing on the beach to catch sea lion cubs, and Namibian hyenas infiltrating colonies of sea lions once night has fallen, this blue-chip wildlife and scientific documentary series brings us previously unseen perspectives of the genius behind these great deep-sea hunters.
