The Smithsonian Channel is prepping a two-part documentary on the Sea of Okhotsk, one of the world’s richest and most dangerous seas.
“Russia’s Wild Sea” explores the wildlife and environment of the sea, located 4,000 miles from Moscow in the far east of Russia, as well as the ingenious adaptations that make life possible in the region despite its many hardships.
Director Franz Hafner and his crew were granted full access to the region, which required arriving by plane and exploring by ship, as no roads reach the shores of the sea.
“Russia’s Wild Sea” premieres June 5 on the Smithsonian Channel with part two airing on June 12.
