A generation ago, Jacques-Yves Cousteau revealed the oceans' mysteries to millions of landlocked PBS television viewers, and inspired a groundswell of public awareness of the unique problems faced by the world's marine environments. Now, 30 years later, KQED Public Broadcasting and Ocean Futures Society have partnered to bring the legacy back to PBS.
Using state-of-the-art technology and accompanied by marine scientists and ecologists, Peabody and Emmy Award-winning Jean-Michel Cousteau and his acclaimed diving teams explore a thrilling array of natural phenomena, investigate little known territories and ecosystems hundreds of feet beneath the ocean's surface, and come face to face with the friendly and ferocious inhabitants of the deep in each episode of Jean-Michel Cousteau Ocean Adventures.
"PBS' commitment to quality marine science and ecology programming was inspired by the prescient explorations of Jacques Cousteau," said John Wilson, Sr. Vice President, PBS Programming. "Now our viewers are able to take the next, great journey into this realm with his son, Jean-Michael, and this unprecedented series."
Consistent with the Cousteau family hallmarks of exploration and conservation, Jean-Michel Cousteau Ocean Adventures shares with television viewers the largely inaccessible, dangerous and spectacular locales across the globe. Through Jean-Michel's observations, the series illuminates the great need for better understanding and sustainable management of the oceans' rich natural treasures.
Jean-Michel Cousteau Ocean Adventures Season One includes: Voyage to Kure Parts I and II, The Gray Whale Obstacle Course, Sharks at Risk and America’s Underwater Treasures Parts I and II. Season Two includes: Return to the Amazon Parts I and II. Season Three includes: Sea Ghosts and Call of the Killer Whale.
