Trivia

The actors were actually in shark infested waters. This was achieved by putting the actors in the water and then chumming the waters around them. Safety nets were secured around the life rafts and actors to prevent any accidental contact. See more »

Harrowing and powerful
29 June 2012 | by hasnoformSee all my reviews

Yet another marvellous drama-doc by Brook Lapping Productions. An intensely powerful piece, well-acted and directed with great flair and awareness of the dramatic. Stunning underwater photography of these beautiful creatures which are the stars of Shark Week. Incredible to see how some of a group of human beings were able to endure such pain and fear and hardship and come out alive. Adds fascinating insight into Robert Vaughan's speech from Jaws about being torpedoes by the Japanese. The Discovery Channel is a host to a myriad of gems such as documentary-dramas like these. National Geographic manage quite a mixture of quality shows too.
