Celebrate the natural world beneath the sea in the company of its greatest explorer.
The name Jacques Cousteau has become synonymous with underwater exploration – testament to a long career spent pushing the boundaries of human knowledge and technology, both as a marine biologist and as a filmmaker. Now, with this beautifully presented triple digipack, experience three of Captain Cousteau’s greatest feature-films – in glorious high definition – in the comfort of your own home.
The recipients of numerous awards, including multiple Oscars and the Palme D’Or, these films reveal the beauty, majesty, thrill and danger to be found at sea and beneath the waves, from the tropical waters of the Red Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean to the frozen world of Antarctica. Cousteau and his crew face adventures the likes of which few have seen, from the pressures of living in a purpose-built underwater base for weeks at a time, to the life-or-death struggle for survival at the South Pole.
Great value collector’s set includes: • The Silent World (‘Le Monde Du Silence’), Cousteau’s first film, winner of the 1956 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, as well as a Palme D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. • World Without Sun (‘Le Monde Sans Soleil’), the film of a 1964 experiment in which a team of divers lived and worked underwater for a month, winner of Cousteau’s second Academy Award (1964 Best Documentary Feature). • Voyage To The Edge Of The World (‘Voyage Au Bout Du Monde’), the 1976 film that followed Cousteau’s beautiful, fateful and deadly trip to Antarctica
