outstanding documentary
6 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

I suppose this documentary aired on PBS in the last year but apparently it is not well known as this is the first review here on IMDb. I thought it was outstanding and should be of interest to any cold war history fan, submarine fans and especially to any engineering project geeks. It reminds me most of films about the building of things like the Hoover Dam or the Brooklyn Bridge. The story is about the attempted recovery of a Russian submarine that went down in 1969 in the center of the Pacific by the Americans. The Americans knew the location but the Russians didn't so there was the secrecy issue but mostly the incredible engineering involved makes for a very compelling story.
