Ever wondered how deep the history of the ocean travels? An estimated 3,000,000 shipwrecks have been recorded on the ocean floor. Yeah, you read that correctly.

Countless shipwrecks lost in the depths of the oceans are rich time capsules containing tales of adventure and tragedy. Now, marine experts are on the hunt to locate these forgotten ships, explore their secrets, and unlock their incredible stories.

In the series’ premiere, maritime archeologist Dr. Innes McCartney and his team embark on an in-depth survey of the UC-66 submarine wreck site in the Irish Sea. Bridging the history of World War I with present-day discoveries, the team uses incredible technology to piece together fractured remains of historic U-Boats and living relics of the past. From wartime disasters to commercial ship collisions, this series exposes the many volatile risks at sea and how they’ve shaped regulations and technological advancements, and also pieces together disasters from history to reveal what really happened and why.
