Remember, Jeffrey, the Junior Nektons are our guests.

0:00:020:00:05

So when they get here, don't forget to smile!

0:00:050:00:08

Dazzling! You charmer(!)

0:00:090:00:12

Yes! I now have their entire schedule mapped out.

0:00:120:00:16

Erm, about that.

0:00:160:00:18

You're really sure you two can handle hosting eight-year-old kids

0:00:180:00:22

on your own for a whole day?

0:00:220:00:24

Is that a trick question?

0:00:240:00:26

It's just that looking after children is hard.

0:00:260:00:29

Ha, as if! Oh, you're serious?

0:00:290:00:32

And I'm just having trouble picturing you two co-operating,

0:00:320:00:36

-because... How do I put this?

-It rarely happens.

0:00:360:00:39

Please, we always work perfectly together.

0:00:390:00:42

-We're like two peas in a...

-Shoebox!

-Exactly.

0:00:420:00:46

Come on, these Junior Nektons

0:00:480:00:50

are going to get to see a whale migration up close.

0:00:500:00:53

They'll be too amazed to be any trouble.

0:00:530:00:55

And me personally, I'm totally relaxed.

0:00:550:00:58

My motto - have fun and everything takes care of itself.

0:00:580:01:01

And suddenly, I don't know this person.

0:01:010:01:03

HELICOPTER WHIRS AHEAD

0:01:030:01:05

Finally!

0:01:050:01:06

Come on, Alan, move!

0:01:150:01:17

Is it always rocking like this?

0:01:200:01:22

I can't wait to meet Fontaine!

0:01:220:01:25

-Very cool, Ted.

-Very, very cool, Todd.

0:01:250:01:28

Welcome, Junior Nek...

0:01:280:01:30

Welcome, members of the worldwide Junior Nekton Fanclub

0:01:300:01:34

to The Aronnax.

0:01:340:01:35

Or should I say, our home, the ocean.

0:01:350:01:38

A place that's filled with as much fun as it is krill.

0:01:380:01:41

So I just have one question for you, Junior Nektons, are you ready

0:01:410:01:46

to have fun?

0:01:460:01:49

OK...

0:01:490:01:51

My family are explorers.

0:01:510:01:54

We have been for generations.

0:01:540:01:56

While others look up to the stars,

0:01:560:01:57

we know there are an infinite number of things

0:01:570:01:59

that shine in the darkness below.

0:01:590:02:02

There are things lurking in the seas that long ago vanished into myth.

0:02:020:02:05

My family are explorers - and we explore

0:02:050:02:09

The Deep.

0:02:090:02:11

So, Charlie, if you have any questions

0:02:220:02:24

about becoming a future submarine captain, you know who to ask.

0:02:240:02:28

Fontaine!

0:02:280:02:31

Yes, Fontaine, that's who I meant.

0:02:310:02:33

She's just going to mingle.

0:02:330:02:35

Nice smile, Jeffrey!

0:02:350:02:37

Fontaine! I read that you love sea birds!

0:02:390:02:42

Oh, Ant wrote that on my profile, but really...

0:02:420:02:45

So I learned the calls of all 312 species of sea bird, just for you.

0:02:450:02:48

Number one, the red-footed booby.

0:02:480:02:51

SHE IMITATES BIRD CALL

0:02:510:02:55

You're really only eight?

0:02:550:02:57

Actually, I'm only seven. I turn eight next month.

0:02:570:02:59

SHE IMITATES BIRD CALL

0:02:590:03:01

Jeffrey looks bigger on his poster. Do you feed him enough?

0:03:010:03:04

Oh, yeah, Jeffrey eats like a little walrus.

0:03:040:03:07

This is delicious red kelp.

0:03:070:03:11

Actually, Jeffrey doesn't eat kelp.

0:03:110:03:13

And now suddenly you like it?

0:03:150:03:16

You could have told me.

0:03:160:03:18

Number 15, the shy albatross.

0:03:180:03:21

SHE IMITATES BIRD CALL

0:03:210:03:24

That albatross doesn't sound shy.

0:03:240:03:27

WHALE CALLS

0:03:270:03:29

Attention, Junior Nektons,

0:03:290:03:30

this is the moment you've been waiting for.

0:03:300:03:33

I present the annual sperm whale migration.

0:03:330:03:36

ALL: Wow!

0:03:380:03:39

Physeter macrocephalus in the flesh.

0:03:440:03:47

I was just about to say that.

0:03:470:03:51

Now, everyone, part of our conservation work...

0:03:510:03:53

Oh, please, Mum, I got this.

0:03:530:03:56

Part of our conservation work

0:03:560:03:58

involves tracking these huge mammals.

0:03:580:04:01

-You mean...you follow them?

-No, Ted, and/or Todd.

0:04:010:04:05

We place electronic trackers on the lead male.

0:04:050:04:08

-Or a bull, as it is more commonly known.

-Exactly.

0:04:080:04:12

And that is where our parents are heading right now.

0:04:120:04:15

We'll be back in ten. Enjoy the show! You...you've got this?

0:04:150:04:20

We've SO got this.

0:04:200:04:22

SHE IMITATES BIRD CALL

0:04:220:04:24

And I'll be describing every step of this fascinating process.

0:04:260:04:30

KIDS: Whoa!

0:04:430:04:45

This is the coolest...

0:04:450:04:48

Thing ever. Why are my ears clicking?

0:04:480:04:52

That clicking sound is...

0:04:520:04:54

The whales talking to each other.

0:04:540:04:56

That giant nose makes a sperm whale's clicks the loudest...

0:04:560:04:59

-Sounds produced by any single animal!

-Thank you, Alan!

0:04:590:05:04

If you look out the window,

0:05:040:05:05

you'll see that skilled co-pilot, Will Nekton,

0:05:050:05:08

is placing the tracker now.

0:05:080:05:10

Tracker attached to dorsal ridge.

0:05:130:05:16

Getting a signal, Fontaine?

0:05:160:05:19

-Strong and clear.

-Excuse me, should we be concerned about that?

0:05:190:05:24

Personally, I am.

0:05:240:05:26

If you zoom in, I think you'll find that that's a driftnet,

0:05:260:05:29

right in the path of those whales.

0:05:290:05:31

-A driftnet?

-How far away?

0:05:330:05:35

12 degrees north, 3.5 nautical miles away.

0:05:350:05:38

At the whales' current speed,

0:05:380:05:40

the lead whales will hit it in 20 minutes.

0:05:400:05:42

We're on our way.

0:05:420:05:44

-What would happen if...

-The whales hit the net?

0:05:440:05:47

Those nets are lethal Ted, or Todd.

0:05:470:05:49

Whales that get tangled up can drown.

0:05:490:05:52

Fontaine - fun, remember?

0:05:520:05:54

Did you know that sperm whales sleep vertically?

0:05:540:05:57

I tried sleeping like that once.

0:05:570:06:00

-I fell over.

-Yeah, onto me!

0:06:000:06:02

Can you cut through it, Dad?

0:06:020:06:03

We have got power shears and the rover's arms.

0:06:030:06:05

We should be able to.

0:06:050:06:07

But we don't have much time.

0:06:070:06:08

We need to remove it before the whales get there.

0:06:080:06:11

That doesn't look right.

0:06:140:06:17

BOTH: Are those...lobster pots?

0:06:170:06:19

The baby one can't reach the surface to breathe.

0:06:190:06:22

I get asthma, so I can relate.

0:06:220:06:25

Two whale emergencies at once?

0:06:250:06:28

-Really?

-Shall we call...

0:06:280:06:30

-Your parents?

-No, they've got their own whale emergency.

0:06:300:06:33

Hey, we can handle stuff, too.

0:06:330:06:36

And I'm staying here with the Junior Nektons, because...?

0:06:410:06:45

That baby needs help right now and a knight is our best option.

0:06:450:06:48

And also cos I'm faster than you.

0:06:480:06:50

The lobster pots look like they're wrapped really tight.

0:06:560:07:00

She understands I want to help.

0:07:030:07:05

Steady, little guy. It's going to be OK.

0:07:080:07:11

We just need to get these ropes off of you.

0:07:110:07:14

-WHALE SCREAMS Ah!

-Ant, are you OK?

0:07:150:07:19

Ant, can you read me?

0:07:200:07:24

Ant!

0:07:240:07:26

Ant, Ant, come in. Do you read?

0:07:270:07:31

Is there some alternate holiday package for us, if this turns ugly?

0:07:310:07:35

Fontaine, I'm OK.

0:07:370:07:39

The baby didn't understand what you were doing.

0:07:400:07:43

I still have to try.

0:07:430:07:45

Driftnets are totally illegal here.

0:07:470:07:50

This one looks huge.

0:07:500:07:51

It's worse in person. Look.

0:07:520:07:55

These fishermen just don't care what they catch.

0:08:020:08:05

Dolphins, sea lions, whales.

0:08:050:08:07

-Sometimes I...

-I know, me too,

0:08:070:08:10

but we have eight minutes before the lead whales arrive.

0:08:100:08:13

This calf needs oxygen and it can't reach the surface.

0:08:160:08:19

I think I've got it.

0:08:190:08:21

Got what?

0:08:210:08:22

You know how some of my best plans involve an element of risk?

0:08:220:08:26

Your worst ones, too.

0:08:260:08:28

Make sure the moon pool door is wide open and the harness is ready.

0:08:280:08:31

You're kidding. You're bringing it aboard?

0:08:310:08:34

The calf won't like it and the mum will hate it,

0:08:340:08:36

but it's the only place it will get air to survive.

0:08:360:08:39

That will be so much fun!

0:08:420:08:45

SHE IMITATES BIRD CALL

0:08:450:08:46

-Can we help?

-Why not?

0:08:460:08:49

You won't like this, but it's for your own good.

0:08:500:08:53

It'll be OK, little guy.

0:08:580:09:00

Come on, come on.

0:09:080:09:09

Fontaine, harness, up, now!

0:09:100:09:13

Close the moon pool. Hurry!

0:09:160:09:18

-Are we sinking?

-No, it's the mother whale.

0:09:210:09:24

She's trying to get the calf back.

0:09:240:09:26

We have to hurry. The mother isn't happy.

0:09:280:09:32

-Ted and Todd, grab the hose.

-BOTH: Yes, Fontaine!

0:09:320:09:35

Stay back, but keep the calf hydrated.

0:09:420:09:45

The calf, not me!

0:09:490:09:51

BOTH: Sorry!

0:09:510:09:53

Alan, on that monitor.

0:09:550:09:57

That device will give you a read-out of the calf's vital signs.

0:09:570:10:00

Is that pulse and blood pressure? Whoa! They're all over the place.

0:10:000:10:04

At least he can breathe, I'll try to make this quick.

0:10:040:10:07

-Fontaine?

-Can't talk right now, Mom.

0:10:090:10:11

We've got a whale aboard.

0:10:110:10:14

-Did you say, whale?

-Just a baby... We can handle it.

0:10:160:10:20

-A baby? What?

-She did say whale, right?

0:10:200:10:24

-She did.

-How long have we got here?

0:10:240:10:27

Maybe three minutes.

0:10:270:10:28

Fontaine, I want details.

0:10:300:10:32

And you'll get them.

0:10:320:10:34

-Guess what this is.

-SHE IMITATES BIRD CALL

0:10:360:10:39

Charlie, do you want to get squashed?

0:10:390:10:41

-Stay back.

-What? Who's getting squashed?

0:10:410:10:44

Nobody. Got to go, mom.

0:10:440:10:45

Calf's getting faster vitals.

0:10:450:10:47

Do we have any anti-nausea medication?

0:10:470:10:50

-Not enough for a whale.

-I meant for me.

0:10:500:10:53

Charlie.

0:11:000:11:02

-Fontaine.

-No!

0:11:020:11:03

Please obey instructions, young lady.

0:11:030:11:05

-Move away.

-But I...

0:11:050:11:07

All these numbers keep dropping.

0:11:110:11:14

Right. Let's get you back in the water.

0:11:190:11:21

It's damaged. It won't open.

0:11:320:11:34

So, how do we get the calf out?

0:11:340:11:38

I really don't...know.

0:11:380:11:40

Will, we're out of time, look.

0:11:450:11:47

I'll pull the net tight, you start cutting.

0:11:510:11:54

OK, Will, now.

0:11:560:11:58

What's that?

0:12:160:12:17

This is how I find the owner.

0:12:170:12:20

Boys, be careful in here. That button floods the moon pool.

0:12:240:12:28

BOTH: Sorry.

0:12:280:12:29

All of the calf's vital signs are way down in the red zone.

0:12:290:12:32

BOTH: Why can't we hear the mother any more, Ant?

0:12:350:12:38

The mother can't hear the calf's call any more,

0:12:380:12:41

so she's returned to the other whales without him.

0:12:410:12:44

-Right, Ant?

-And this little guy will never survive

0:12:440:12:46

without his mother's milk.

0:12:460:12:48

-Where's Charlie?

-She ran off.

0:12:490:12:52

She was making these sad little bird noises.

0:12:520:12:54

She was upset with you.

0:12:540:12:56

Oh, no.

0:12:560:12:57

Come on, moon pool. Open up.

0:12:580:13:01

Rover to Aronnax.

0:13:010:13:02

-Ant, are you there?

-Here, Dad.

0:13:020:13:04

And things aren't going too well.

0:13:040:13:07

Charlie, I'm sorry I told you to go away. Charlie?

0:13:070:13:12

Dad, the iris still won't open.

0:13:140:13:16

Use that overactive imagination of yours, Ant,

0:13:160:13:19

you will find a solution.

0:13:190:13:21

Maybe. Maybe not.

0:13:210:13:23

This calf has a very low life expectancy,

0:13:230:13:26

so what are you going to do?

0:13:260:13:29

You've got all the answers, Alan, why don't you tell me?

0:13:290:13:32

I-I...

0:13:320:13:33

I just know what I read in books.

0:13:330:13:35

I'm not like you. You solve things.

0:13:350:13:38

Yeah, sometimes.

0:13:380:13:40

Remember when you rescued the albino megamouth shark

0:13:400:13:42

from freezing in the fjord?

0:13:420:13:44

-Or when you escaped that collapsing underwater cave?

-Yeah.

0:13:440:13:48

Remember when you single-handedly steered

0:13:480:13:50

the Aronnax out of that whirlpool?

0:13:500:13:52

How do you remember these stories?

0:13:520:13:54

-I remember every Ant Nekton story.

-Ant Nekton is my hero.

0:13:540:13:58

Ant, you're the reason I became interested in

0:14:000:14:02

the ocean in the first place.

0:14:020:14:05

If there's one thing Ant Nekton has taught me

0:14:050:14:07

it's that you've got to have faith in the fish.

0:14:070:14:11

BOTH: Yeah! Have faith in the fish.

0:14:110:14:14

Although it is a whale,

0:14:140:14:16

so the correct motto is "Have faith in the mammal".

0:14:160:14:19

Watch that button.

0:14:190:14:20

It floods the whole... Ted and Todd, one of you has given me an idea.

0:14:200:14:25

We should flood the room.

0:14:250:14:27

Charlie?

0:14:290:14:31

Charlie, I'm not great at apologies.

0:14:340:14:37

I never really have to apologise to Ant.

0:14:370:14:39

He's always wrong. But I'm sorry.

0:14:390:14:42

Today I learned how hard it is to raise kids

0:14:420:14:45

in this fast-paced modern submarine.

0:14:450:14:47

I learned this.

0:14:470:14:49

SHE IMITATES WHALE CALL

0:14:490:14:51

Wait. Is that the mother whale?

0:14:510:14:54

Would you like the baby, too? Listen.

0:14:540:14:57

SHE IMITATES BABY WHALE CALL

0:14:570:14:59

Charlie.

0:14:590:15:01

You may have just saved the day.

0:15:010:15:02

OK, Alan, fill the moon pool up to here.

0:15:020:15:05

We need to create enough pressure to force the door.

0:15:050:15:07

Are we going to need scuba gear?

0:15:070:15:09

Yeah. That might be a good idea.

0:15:090:15:11

OK, Charlie, before the mother whale gets too far away maybe we can bring

0:15:160:15:19

her back, by using your whale sounds over the exterior speakers.

0:15:190:15:23

Does that sound like a plan?

0:15:230:15:24

SHE IMITATES WHALE CALL

0:15:240:15:26

OK. I'll see if we can use the extra pressure to force

0:15:300:15:33

the other door open.

0:15:330:15:34

Come on! Hmmm.

0:15:400:15:41

The laser cutter.

0:15:420:15:44

SHE IMITATES WHALE CALL

0:15:440:15:47

I love this girl!

0:15:470:15:49

Mom, Dad, can you see the mother whale?

0:15:530:15:56

Nothing here, Fontaine.

0:15:560:15:57

We'll turn back and see if we can find her.

0:15:570:16:00

Just need to straighten this a bit more.

0:16:010:16:05

Yes!

0:16:050:16:06

Alan, try to open it now.

0:16:090:16:11

Awesome! It worked!

0:16:150:16:17

Oh, no. Careful.

0:16:170:16:19

We created a whirlpool from the pressure.

0:16:220:16:24

Hang on tight.

0:16:240:16:26

THEY SCREAM

0:16:270:16:29

No!

0:16:290:16:31

Fontaine, we have a problem.

0:16:370:16:40

Ant, the Junior Nektons are in the ocean?

0:16:410:16:44

I know, I know, I'm trying to fix this.

0:16:440:16:47

Gotcha. Got them, Fontaine.

0:16:500:16:52

The calf, it just doesn't know what to do.

0:16:520:16:55

It's lost and it's not going to make it without the mother.

0:16:550:16:58

Can you see the mother whale?

0:16:580:17:00

No, no sign.

0:17:000:17:02

SHE IMITATES WHALE CALL

0:17:020:17:06

Oh, this isn't good. The calf won't survive alone like this.

0:17:100:17:13

Oh, no.

0:17:130:17:15

SHE IMITATES WHALE CALL

0:17:150:17:18

Huh?

0:17:220:17:24

Charlie, you did it!

0:17:320:17:34

Is that a hostile expression?

0:17:450:17:48

No-one move. Just stay calm.

0:17:480:17:52

This is OK.

0:17:550:17:57

I think she knows that we are friends.

0:17:570:18:00

Guys, hold on.

0:18:000:18:02

Is that what I think it is?

0:18:120:18:15

Are you seeing this?

0:18:150:18:16

She's bringing them back!

0:18:210:18:22

Woo-hoo, all right!

0:18:220:18:25

She's bringing them home.

0:18:250:18:27

OK. Let go.

0:18:290:18:31

You're welcome.

0:18:430:18:45

I used this to track down the fishing company.

0:18:500:18:53

They were nice enough to collect that net in a hurry.

0:18:530:18:56

Bye, Mr and Mrs Nekton.

0:18:560:18:58

-We'll miss you.

-We'll miss you, too, Ted.

0:18:580:19:02

-Was that Ted?

-Uh, no idea.

0:19:020:19:05

SHE IMITATES BIRD CALL

0:19:050:19:07

And that was number 24, the city shearwater.

0:19:070:19:10

Wow. All right.

0:19:100:19:12

Pity I never got to hear all 312.

0:19:120:19:15

-I could put them all on a CD for you.

-That would be great.

0:19:150:19:19

You know, a couple more whale rides and you'd make a great Ant Nekton.

0:19:250:19:28

Oh, thanks.

0:19:280:19:30

But I'll stick to being me.

0:19:300:19:32

Plain old Alan Maximus Lobonof Vrstofski III.

0:19:320:19:36

Lord of Frombork.

0:19:360:19:37

That's your name?

0:19:370:19:39

See you later, Jeffrey.

0:19:390:19:40

Be good. Wow.

0:19:400:19:42

Look at that smile.

0:19:420:19:44

I know, it's dazzling, right?

0:19:440:19:45

So charismatic.

0:19:450:19:47

Have faith in the fish!

0:19:510:19:54

Have faith in the fish.

0:19:540:19:56

Ant, look.

0:20:110:20:13

So, you still think taking care of kids is easy?

0:20:160:20:19

You are so lucky you've got us.

0:20:190:20:21

We must make your job so simple.

0:20:210:20:24

BOTH: What?

0:20:260:20:27

Ant and Fontaine are sure they can control some young fans visiting the Aronnax. But when they have to rescue a whale calf, success depends on them and all the hyperactive kids working well together. What could go wrong?
