Episode InformationAn ancient species and one of the largest animals ever to live on planet earth, humpback whales have been traveling – and singing – through the world’s oceans for millions of years. Like the oceans themselves, we know surprisingly little of humpback’s lives. This film is a startlingly intimate portrait of humpback life through the eyes of a mother whale as she teaches her baby all he will need to know to survive in the ocean.
