Alien Deep With Bob Ballard

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC – Sundays from 30 September, 6.30pm

Dr Bob Ballard is the greatest underwater explorer of his generation. But he reckons the tough job of shining a light into the abyss has only just begun. This is his voyage of discovery, his vision of our ocean planet’s past, present and future. The oceans cover 71 percent of the planet – a mere 5 percent of which has been explored. In that 5 percent, Ballard has found the Titanic, the Bismarck, the carrier Yorktown and entirely new forms of life. Just think of what’s waiting for us in the remaining 95 percent!
