Filmed in 10 countries, across four continents, Tide is an epic, sweeping and visually stunning exploration of one of the most powerful and mysterious natural forces on Earth. Using beautiful time-lapses and drone footage, and packed with accessible new science, the series investigates man’s efforts to harness the tide for environmental, social, and economic benefits and also features fascinating stories from people whose lives are affected by the tide – such as fishermen and surfers. From Norway and China to Canada and the Netherlands, and from beaches and marshlands to swamps and estuarine mud flats, this rare examination of this ever-changing force of nature visits stunning locations and witnesses the world’s strongest and highest tides, as well as raging whirlpools and tidal races.
