Summary

David Attenborough investigates the opportunities tides create for marine life, showing giant stingrays gliding on currents for a rest, South African sea snails surfing the waves in pursuit of a meal, crabs playing football on a beach, and bottlenose dolphins embarking on a dangerous game of catch.
