Good Movies About Coral Reefs???

I'm looking for good suggestions for movies or videos about Coral Reefs with good shots and information about coral and the creatures that inhabit the reef?

I watched national geographics "draining the ocean" last night. It was about deep water coral reefs.

Ones with the narrator in the movie is are really cool... like David Attenborough, or Coustau Jr Jr.

The entire Planet Earth series is great, but it's more than just the ocean. I agree with all the others listed.

I recorded 2 "Kingdom of the Oceans" shows the other day. The 2nd one (Fire & Ice) isn't corals, but the 1st one (Predator's Paradise) description is "Coral polyps change the Earth's geography." I caught the 2nd half of the 1st one, but didn't see any coral...lots of fish, though. I'll probably watch them this weekend when my boyfriend comes back from out of town. They were on NatGeoWild and Cousteau's daughter did the ads/intros for them.

Coral Reef Adventure (2003) is the the best coral reef documentary in my book....and it is narrated by Liam Neeson who is a big time actor.

i recently watched Discover Planet Ocean that was on Netflix.

it's a multi-part documentary series. the first several featured coral reefs heavily. some really incredible footage. the narration wasn't always the best, but the video more than made up for it.

If you have a couple of hours to spend and fast internet, I'm 30 minutes into the almost 2 hours of watching this. Excellent so far.

Reef Life of the Andaman

Mostly fish, but excellent.

Next they need to do a movie about animated corals with names and personalities.
