OCEAN WORLD An Ecological Entertainment - Published in association with the World Wide Fund for Nature. Music by Peter Rose. Lyrics and narration by Anne Conlon SYNOPSIS Man has always been fascinated by the sea, but today his exploitation of the earth's resources is destroying this underwater world. Coral mining, whaling ships, commercial fishing vessels, oil spillage and domestic, industrial and nuclear wastes - this combined assault means that the oceans simply cannot sustain the extraordinary quantity and variety of species that it holds. The author's message is clear and simple: if man continues to misuse the sea, he will ultimately kill all life in it. With a powerful and moving score, Ocean World was shown in Channel 4's "Fragile Earth" series, narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
