This gripping drama brings to life the true rogue-shark story that inspired Jaws. In 1916, the New Jersey shore became a feeding ground as five people were attacked in 12 days, triggering a nationwide panic. It was the first multiple shark attack in American history, and the reason we fear sharks to this day. Written by
...remarkable to note that it was indeed the incidents of these manifold shark attacks in 1916 off the East Coast of America that were the original inspiration (I think this is correct) for Jaws. I think this also may have been an addition to Shark Week on the USA Discovery Channel. Good performances especially from Anthony Edridge and also from Peter Brooke as the Reporter. Sharks seem to have an endless fascination for man, perhaps it's the mixture of their physical beauty mixed in with the fear they are able to produce in humans as well as their more standard 'prey'. I look forward to more drama-docs about sharks since they are all so engrossing. The counter-play and differing viewpoints of the two leads was handled very well.
