No series link available though, which is a bit strange. Or is it the same programme repeated everynight?

I recorded this last night and at a quick glance it looks really disappointing - more like upscaled SD and not a patch on some of the Nat Geo HD stuff.

Is it just my eyes?

This is the reference programme to show visitors when you are trying to impress them with your HD set-up.It never fails .

do you have a hangover? :D

No, but maybe I was sitting too close to the TV?!

Just to check you guys actually watched last night's broadcast? I'll record it again tonight and see what I think...

They should do one night with just the ocean, and the next night with the ocean and music. I personally perfer the ocean only - the music is annoying!

It is the same one repeated everynight. I recorded last nights and watched this morning, its the same one as Sat night! Still it's stunning. Music is annoying but you can turn the volume down.:thumbsup:

It is better than the stuff on Discovery without fail.

Its great to show others who know me who say that HD is not that good. It is THAT good, you just need some good material to show them.

Livingforever - you sure you don't have jam or vaseline smeared down your TV? :eek:

I don't know how this side of it works, but is there anyway that Sky could be improving the standard of this program but improving the bit rate or anything. Its on at 2am and other channels have shut down at that point. Its just better than anything I have seen broadcast so far in my view.
Also why oh why do they not show this in shops or at a more earlier time, it would be great for those thinking about Hd to go and see this in the shops. Could help sales for Sky and maybe bring the cost down for them in the long run.

Looks like I'm completely outvoted on this one, but I probably was a bit bleary eyed when I looked at it... I just didn't see the same definition I've been so impressed with from a couple of Nat Geo sea programmes and a few movies.

Will look again!

There is just one programme which is repeated (the fish get paid repeat fees). If you record it as a demo it is huge, I set a manual record for 15 mins and that kept it down to 5%.

I still have the first airing of this from August 2006 on my box. At the time i thought the picture quality was excellent. Having looked at it recently, its nowhere near as good as other programmes on BBCHD and NGCHD/DCHD.

I think my TV deals with bright colours very well, which is why Im very happy with this. Some of the darker programmes on bbc hd are not that good on my TV.

Too true. I wanted to watch that without music.

I know it's a bit sad, but i'm mad about marine life and the ocean. I have got a 5.1 ocean waves CD. I turned the lights down, stuck the CD in the system and watched. Absolutely brilliant.

I enjoyed Deep Blue on BBC HD as well. I'm just disappointed that they have never shown Blue Planet in HD.
