Yep you read that right, James Cameron himself joins me to wrap up twelve great episodes with gripping tales of exploring what lies in the deepest parts of the ocean. From filming historic shipwrecks like the German battleship Bismarck (16,000 feet deep) and Titanic (12,500 feet deep), to the very bottom of the world at nearly 36,000 feet in the Mariana Trench! It goes without saying that James Cameron is a good story teller and I was on the edge of my seat for every minute of this interview. An incredibly generous guy, he gave me over an hour of his time and I felt like we could have chatted about diving for another hour at least. But I was scared of his PA so I thought I better wrap it up :-).
The episode is dedicated to a mutual friend, Andrew Wight. Andrew was an Australian cave diver who who got his break in documentary film making when the cave his team was exploring on the Nullarbor Plain in Australia collapsed, trapping many of them underground. He was a great Aussie explorer and film maker and his story inspired the James Cameron feature film Sanctum. Sadly Andrew died in a helicopter crash whilst working on Cameron's Deep Sea Challenge project.
Finally a shout out to the dive companies who support my projects with their great equipment, awesome after sales service and even sometimes some good prices! Shearwater Research, O'Three Drysuits, Seacraft Scooters, KISS Rebreathers, ISC Megalodon, and Bremont watches (I'm an ambassador).
See you soon for Season 2!
