50 Million Years Under the Sea
A scientific odyssey devoted to one of the natural world's great survivors, the coral reef - animal survivors unchanged after 50 million years under the sea. The journey begins in a fossil mine in the Italian Dolomites, and travels to the China Sea, the Florida Keys, the Red Sea, and finally to the quintessential expression of the modern coral reef, the Great Barrier Reef. What is being learned about the reef, in terms of both science and management, will be crucial in the battle to save the world's coral reefs. Scientists and experts from Egypt, the USA and Australia present their views and findings.
