Storyline

THE DROWNING COUNTRY One woman's fate to save lives at sea. The Drowning Country, a 25 minute documentary that uncovers a New Zealand woman who designed the Salvus Kapok life jacket during WW1, and also examines Kiwi attitudes to life jackets amid some of the worst drowning rates in the world. In 1863, Orpheus Beaumont, a mariner's daughter, was named after a shipwreck thought to have claimed her brother. What follows is a life story of determination and tenacity in her quest to save lives at sea. Told by Caroline Fitzgerald, her great grand-daughter, this documentary asks - was her struggle to revolutionise life jackets all in vain? Written by Anonymous
