James Cameron’s Deep Sea Chal­lenge

Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Sun­day, SBS One, 8.30pm

Direc­tor James Cameron’s love of the wa­ter was prob­a­bly one guiding fac­tor that en­ticed him to make Ti­tanic. But his love of the ocean goes deeper and darker than even that fate­ful ship could go and this fas­ci­nat­ing doc­u­men­tary ex­plores just that. With money hardly an op­tion, Cameron and his crew built a sub­mersible ve­hi­cle that, for the first time, al­lowed hu­mans to visit the deep­est part of the ocean. The tech­ni­cal dif­fi­culty in this task has been com­pared to that of land­ing a man on the moon. The project was years in the mak­ing and wasn’t with­out hic­cups. A true ex­am­ple of what hap­pens when you hold tight to your dreams.
