Drain the Ocean

CGI STILL:  Mid angle cliffs of the Grand Bahama Bank.  The Bahamas are a group of hundreds of islands lapped by shallow turquoise seas, often only twenty feet or so deep.  These islands are scattered over an area of nearly 5 and a half thousand square miles. Poking above the surface, theyre just the tips of a huge underwater structure called the Great Bahama Bank.
What if we could pull the plug and drain the planet's water? What would we see? What would we learn? Follow NGC on a virtual scientific expedition to the deep as we explore one of earth's last great frontiers. We'll remove the water using CGI animation, revealing a landscape of unimaginable scale with unexpected features more dramatic than anything on dry land. With the very latest scientific data and digital mapping, discover the deepest canyons and biggest mountains on the planet.
