Oceans – The Red Sea

Today on Discovery Enterprise we present the third instalment of the BBC documentary series Oceans and explore the remote and unexplored Southern Red Sea, teeming with marine life and home to some of the warmest waters on the planet.

With unique access, expedition leader Paul Rose, environmentalist Philippe Cousteau Jr, maritime archaeologist Dr Lucy Blue and marine biologist and oceanographer Tooni Mahto investigate whether the vibrant coral here can help other coral reefs threatened by global warming.

They dive in one of only two places on Earth you can see a new ocean being born; they explore the wreck of an Italian ship, to find her top secret, deadly cargo; and they uncover archaeological evidence of one of early man’s first encounters with the sea.
And, Philippe Cousteau Jr has an emotional journey to the remains of an ambitious underwater village established by his grandfather, Jacques Cousteau, in 1963 to discover whether humans could live beneath the waves.
The Red Sea is one of the youngest oceans in the world and one of the warmest. The northern region, with its diverse array of marine life, is one of the most visited dive locations on earth while the southern end remains virtually unexplored. It’s a global hotspot for marine biology and an important trade route throughout human history, linking the trade goods of India and the Far East with the markets of Egypt and Europe.
