This episode first aired in the spring of 1968 when I was only 3, so I must have seen a rerun.  Like practically every marine scientist of my generation, waiting for “The Undersea World” on Sunday evenings was the highlight of my week and made a deep impression on me.  Note the cold open, which was cutting edge for the time (think Law and Order), and sill seems edgy for a nature documentary.
