Planet Earth – Parts 6 & 7

Get ready to immerse yourself in the Shallow Seas and explore the Great Plains in tonight’s installments of Planet Earth, airing on the Discovery Channel.

SHALLOW SEAS
Airs Sunday, April 8, at 8 p.m. ET/PT
Follow a humpback whale mother and her calf on their epic journey to
the most prolific feeding grounds that fringe the coasts. The shallow
seas that lie above the continental shelf are the richest in the ocean.
It is here that you find the coral reefs and, in colder waters, the
fishing grounds. Massive shoals of fish act like magnets for predators.
Spectacular storm footage, above and below the water, reveals
extraordinary events in this tropical paradise.

GREAT PLAINS
Airs Sunday, April 8, at 9 p.m. ET/PT
A quarter of the earth’s surface is covered with grass, and the world’s
plains are home to massive herds of animals. This episode traverses the
grasslands of Mongolia and the flooding plains of Papua New Guinea, and
finds great gatherings of creatures, such as East Africa’s wildebeest
and clusters of rare grazers like Mongolian gazelles.
