The Gentle Giants
Narrated by David Attenborough
Every year grey whales make the longest migration of any mammal -from the Arctic to Mexico and back again. The round trip of 10,000 miles is so slow and gentle that boat-trippers can actually stroke the whales as they cruise down the Californian coast.
This programme shows for the first time the extraordinary courtship and mating of these 30-ton ocean travellers.
