I won't comment on the choice of musical selections for each chapter---you'll either be indifferent to it, or hate it (it's background music, what more can I say?). Audio is LPCM 2-Channel stereo, and very clean and defined. The menu is clean and simple, and rather well thought out as it doesn't overwhelm the TV screen's real estate with glitz and flash, but still manages to tell you what you need to know. Compared to the "new" BBC series Planet Earth (shot over a 5-year period), I'm inclined to believe the video footage on Into The Sea was shot quite a while ago, as it just doesn't have the detail of the aforementioned title. On DVD, this content probably looks pretty spectacular, but on BD it looks very soft, softer than I had anticipated. Typical to older video gear's CCD sensitivity (or maybe in the transfer encoding), there's occasional false-contouring in the underwater sequences, from light-to-dark, and vice versus, but not as many as I expected to see. I'd like to see NHK reshoot this video from scratch!
