Suddhadib- Hardeep shipwreck DVD
Written by Stephen Burton
A truly outstanding example of shipwreck research and wreck diving documentary.
Diver & shipwreck researcher Peter Walker assisted by a team of keen professional divers unravel the history of one of Thailand’s most popular shipwrecks.
From a standing start Peter has succeeded in completely researching the history of what was, a mystery shipwreck. Never before seen footage and actual aerial photography of the bombing raid that sunk the Suddhadib, establish for the first time what really happened in 1945 when the Royal Thai Navy at anchor was attacked by a squadron of B24 liberator bombers.
Peter’s clear ‘BBC style’ presentation and multi-lingual detective skills comb through Thai naval history and cross the world to trace the actual bomber crews involved in this raid 65 years after the sinking, for a first hand ‘on camera’ interview of what it was like to be there during a low level bombing run against enemy shipping.
Underwater video footage clearly documents all aspects of diving this wreck including penetration diving into the more challenging areas that are out of reach to recreational divers. The video survey also documents the many unexploded bombs that still litter the seabed around her, and the dozens of species of marine life that have made this shipwreck there home.
This comprehensive DVD with a fully featured bonus section, makes this a ‘must have’ item for all wreck divers visiting Thailand.
