When Sharks At­tack

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Television -

Thurs­day, 7.30pm, National Ge­o­graphic Wild Bondi and sharks go to­gether some­times. My ad­vice: al­ways ma­noeu­vre some­one more suc­cu­lent than your­self be­tween you and the waves out the back. Aus­tralia has about 14 shark at­tacks and two fa­tal­i­ties a year — or 877 at­tacks and 217 fa­tal­i­ties since records be­gan; South Africa isn’t far be­hind. Tonight, Amer­i­can ex­perts ex­plore why last year a rogue shark scared the be­je­sus out of swim­mers along the Florida coast. Shades of Jaws, the 1975 film that con­fined a gen­er­a­tion of bathers to swim­ming pools for years.
