Monty Halls explores Australia's Great Barrier Reef, one of the natural wonders of the world and the largest living structure on our planet. The Great Barrier Reef is vast, 2000km long and as far as 160km offshore, so capturing its greatest spectacles and most amazing characters posed many challenges. From their base in Cairns, Northern Queensland, Australia, the production team and film crews could cover the length of the reef. The teams often spent weeks at sea in order to reach the remotest locations, some of which had never been filmed before.
The team's underwater cameramen spent over 600 hours underwater, using both conventional SCUBA and the latest re-breather equipment so they could remain as long as possible at depth. Remote Operated Vehicles ( ‘R.O.V.s’ ) were piloted to the drop-off , many hundreds of metres down to the seabed, filming for the first time many scenes from the deep ocean alongside the reef. For the first time, filmmakers also turned their attention to the seldom explored lagoon that lies between the reef and mainland Australia. Here they filmed many behaviours seldom seen before and species never before recorded on the Great Barrier Reef.
