Deep Wreck Mysteries
Britain and Ireland, island nations, have incredibly rich maritime histories. Thousands of vessels lie wrecked off their shores. Many sank in times of war and are yet to be discovered. Deep below the surface of the sea, they remain silent witnesses to conflict and carnage.
At over fifty metres in depth, they’ve been too difficult to find; too deep to dive; too dangerous to film. Among those hidden victims are some of the largest and most impressive ships ever to plummet to the bottom – giant battleships, massive cargo carriers and towering ocean liners.
The latest advances in survey and dive technology finally locate and bring these deep sea wrecks vividly to the screen, exposing a world of deadly intrigue and cover-up. With analysis from top wreck scientists and historians, alongside rare eyewitness testimony from survivors, this fascinating series of investigations sheds dazzling new light on an eerie twilight world. After decades of lying dormant on the ocean's floor, the truth behind these submerged casualties of war finally surfaces.
