Following in the footsteps of their award winning series The Blue Planet and Planet Earth, comes a new program entitled “South Pacific”.

Premiering May 10, 2009 on BBC2, this new series takes a look at the very unique creatures and landscapes that inhabit this most isolated of regions.

Below is a clip of surfer Dylan Longbottom inside a 12 foot wave off the Caroline Islands filmed in super-slo-mo. Apparantly the first time it’s been done.
