PBS Meets The Ship Sinkers

Monday, October 14th, 2019

How do you turn rusting ships into thriving artificial reefs, perfect for diving and home to all kinds of marine life? Join The Ship Sinkers at 7.50pm on Thursday 17th, as they turn former New Zealand frigate HMNZS Wellington into a thriving underwater world.

Cutting the rusting hulks up for scrap is expensive, and leaving them to fall apart in the world’s dockyards is an ecological nightmare. Instead, The Ship Sinkers meticulously clean them of pollutants, wire them with explosives and sink them.

Featuring exclusive archive materials from the early days of ship sinking and stunning new high- definition footage, take a trip beneath the waves as clapped-out wrecks become diving meccas – and big business for the tourist industry.
