Deep Wreck Mysteries Documentary Series Overview (2006-2008)


Deep Wreck Mysteries is a 2006 documentary series exploring the historical secrets revealed by deep-sea wrecks.

Much of Britain’s underwater heritage has been beyond the reach of investigation. Too difficult to find, too deep to dive, too dark and dangerous to film. Now, advances in dive technology bring these deep sea wrecks to the screen, revealing a world of secret weapons, negligence and atrocity.


Our island nation has more maritime history buried beneath its waves than anywhere else on earth.

Its deep-sea wrecks are the gold-dust of underwater exploration – and just as elusive: too hard to find, too deep to reach, too dark to film. And because of this Britain’s most intriguing wrecks have remained in an eerie, twilit world, silent witnesses to the conflict and carnage of their sinking.

The ghost ships of the deep, holding the secrets of the dead.
