Desert Seas

Along the east and west coasts of Saudi Arabia are two seas that contain a treasure of marine life that few knew existed -- and even fewer had ever seen. The Arabian Gulf was formed at the end of the last Ice Age, some 10,000 years ago, and the Red Sea's history goes back even further. And now, thanks to Saudi Aramco, for the first time millions of viewers across the globe are able to marvel and see up close the exotic marine life that populates these two bodies of water. Saudi Aramco teamed up with award winning British documentary makers Icon Films to produce Desert Seas, a 60 minute natural history production that took more than a year to produce. The film's objective was clear: to expose the world to the wondrous subsurface realms of the Kingdom's waters.

  • There is no scientific proof of coral reef starving.. The docu made this up. In fact reefs do very well in warm seas and higher CO2.

  • Reefs and other things are not dying because of us. Read a KJV Bible - Though you may not be able to understand most of it if you're unsaved, God will pinpoint areas that will open your eyes. You may even come forth and get saved by calling out to God to save you if you're in a true repentance state. Even if salvation isn't something to you (you're foolish), you'd learn that the earth has been dying since the beginning.

  • "Middle East?" Where is the Middle West, Middle North, or Middle South? The man just got finished telling and showing you Saudi Arabia was connected and indeed part of the land mass making up North Africa. The Temples of Karnak, Abydos, Luxor and on and on... Nile Valley Civilization preceding "Mesopotamia" by thousands if not tens of thousands of years! Cradle of Civilization my ass! This nonsense is way more damaging than so called black men being shot by the police, the outright intentional deception (war) of the conquerors "history" lessons and shame of the true origin of the original man leads to confusion. Therefore we worship what we know not, listen to strangers and infants in the eyes of history and the original people are easily led in the wrong direction and hard to be led in the right. Peace.

    • Hi Mauricio! I appreciate the fact you're from another country and aren't fluent in English, reaching out for some answers to help you better understand. The phrase (not frase, that isn't a word) that you're referring to is explaining that the edge of the reef where it drops (as seen in the video) into deeper ocean attracts "large schools" (a school is generally what a group of fish are referred to in English, so this is saying a large group of fish), because little bits of food from the reef are falling down the side into the deeper ocean. So basically, in other words it could be, "the edge of the reef where it drops down into deeper ocean attracts large groups of fish". I hope this was helpful

  • It is very inappropriate to make a documentary without having enough knowledge and information about the subject of the documentary. Because it will convey the wrong information to the audience. Just like you have documented a place without learning the proper name. Even if you had an elementary school education, you should be named after the third, fourth, and fifth grade geography textbook ,You learned the "Persian Gulf" correctly. and today you don't mistakenly call it "the Gulf".

    Amir hadiAmir hadi7 mánuðum síðan
    • @GoMhaaad The name of the Persian Gulf does not bear the slightest resemblance to the newly established countries around it, and like the mentioned countries, it is not related to today or yesterday to be established and change to a documentary filmmaker or people like you, the Persian Gulf has been and is from the beginning of history It will also be. And the small Arab countries that have recently been born thanks to Iran are better off choosing the same size as their mouths.

    • @GoMhaaad In this 21st century that you live in, the denial of the past and the attempt to cover up the historical realities of nations and in general any ridiculous and fruitless attempt to confiscate the desired names, places and times is just one name and that is "rape". To the rights of others. The same thing that Hitler did at a higher level and led to fascism.

    • @Amir hadi I remember reading my geography in elementary school, there were no mention 3rd world countries as not important, as I grew older and continued reading books and acquiring knowledge, I discovered the Arabian gulf, and it is magnificent marine life as you can see in this documentary.

      GoMhaaadGoMhaaad6 mánuðum síðan
    • @GoMhaaad There is still hope that you at least admit that its name has been the Persian Gulf until today, and if it has changed, assuming it is impossible, it has been done present time.

      Amir hadiAmir hadi6 mánuðum síðan
    • @GoMhaaad As I said, knowing this information requires primary education, which you don't seem to have gone through, and you still insist on your wrong position. Just review the geography textbook for fifth-year elementary students.

Man will be his greatest threat to life on this planet! Once gone, the planet will take 500 years to rid the presence of man...there will be nothing left...just jungles where towering sky scrapers rose into the sky...and the oceans 🌊 will be so blessed with new life! Man will be gone...the dinosaurs 🦖 ruled 150 million years we won’t last 3 million? Well really 80,000 years for homo Saipan...not much time but we ruined this world. Enjoy !
