Underwater Universe – The Seven Deadly Seas

Today on Far Future Horizons we embark on a voyage into the realm of inner space and visit the Underwater Universe of Aquatica (the Undersea realm of our planet).

Underwater Universe is a documentary series that tracks the history and evolution of the ocean’s seven deadliest zones. Locations that throughout history have been the direct cause of human devastation - floods, tsunamis, hurricanes, whirlpools, ice, underwater volcanoes, and shipping graveyards.

Leading oceanographers, expedition footage from partnering organizations like Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and 3-D animation depict the awesome cosmic and geological fluctuations that make the Oceans deadly over time.

Viewers see how history records our early ancestors interacting with these deadly forces, i.e., The Great Flood; cultures worshiping the ocean as a fickle God, and making sacrifices to satiate it. With advances in navigation, engineering, and meteorology, people today have learned to avoid some of these catastrophes. But our sophisticated technologies have also created new threats, and the possibility that our own actions are making the oceans deadlier.

Underwater Universe is an exciting History Channel documentary series you will want to add to your collection and is available on DVD from

Five deadly forces, four turbulent episodes, one powerful surge of entertainment.

Welcome to the ocean's dark side. Building on the History Channel's successful Underwater Universe special, this new limited series goes deep to explore undersea forces that have brought terror and destruction to our planet throughout history. Beneath the surface of our oceans, tides and currents, predators, lethal pressure and killer shockwaves create ongoing and ominous threats. CGI animation, heart-stopping cinematography and submersible expedition footage shed new light on hard science, dramatic historical stories and riveting first-person accounts.
