Coral Seas

from BBC series Blue Planet
(Great Britain 2001, 50’)

Life on a coral reef starts with one coral larva which lands in the right place and grows. Soon it’s a coral head, cemented and secure on the seabed. A tiny algae that lives in its tissues allows the coral to grow night and day and as more corals settle, a reef develops. Overcrowding follows as corals expand and soon they’re fighting - digesting their neighbours alive under cover of darkness. 

Commentary by Aleksei Turovski.
In English.
