Immerse yourself in a world of watery wonderment

Published on January 22nd 2008.


Blue Planet

Enter the hidden depths of the ocean as the Blue Planet Live! Comes to Manchester Central on 20 April.

Having recently wowed audiences in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Montreal and Copenhagen, the show based on award-winning BBC documentary The Blue Planet is returning to the UK to bring life-like imagery and amazing sound quality to the underwater world.

The message for children and adults alike is to think and act with consideration. But this isn’t packaged in worthy but dull sentiments it comes framed in epic enjoyment.

From magnificent shots of majestic blue whales, right through to the weird and wonderful world of the deep, The Blue Planet Live! carries a message that goes beyond pure entertainment. The message for children and adults alike is to think and act with consideration. But this isn’t packaged in worthy but heavy and dull sentiments it comes framed in epic enjoyment

Alistair Fothergill, Series Producer for The Blue Planet television series said: “In creating The Blue Planet I wanted to take the viewers on a journey to a place that they’d never been before, and to be emotionally moved by it. From the creatures of the deep to the awesome blue whale The Blue Planet Live! puts the audience in a moving and dramatic world at an immense scale.”

The 2008 The Blue Planet Live! tour is an opportunity for audiences to see these stunning sequences synchronised impeccably with George Fenton’s emotional and epic score for which he has been awarded BAFTA, Emmy and Ivor Novello awards. The show will also be conducted by the five time Oscar nominee himself who was recently awarded the Ivor Novello Academy Fellowship. The beautiful and atmospheric music will be brought to life by full scale orchestra, Manchester Camerata.

One of the BBC Natural History Unit’s most successful brands of the last twenty years, The Blue Planet series was created in 2001 and has been sold to more than 140 countries, winning countless awards. Sir David Attenborough has said of the live shows:

“These concerts are not only a musical phenomenon; they also provide a stunningly visual and thought-provoking way of helping people to understand the oceans and the need for their protection.”
