Discovery's longest-running TV event returns. Once more, Shark Week will host seven days of shark-centric specials that cast another light on nature's sea dogs. Some of the highlights include:
Andrew Mayne: Ghost Diver
Illusionist and sharks don't usually go together unless it's for a death-defying trick. But if the premise of the show is anything to go by, maybe it is. Andrew Mayne, the aforementioned illusionist, is attempting to test out his Shark Suit that makes him invisible to sharks. Will it go… swimmingly? Well, it'll be much better than that stupid pun.
The Sharks of Headstone Hell
Norfolk Island used to house one of the world's harshest penal colonies. Today, though, some of the largest tiger sharks on earth gather around there due to the animal carcasses thrown into the water by the islanders living there. Shark scientist Riley Elliott investigates on whether sharks' behaviours were altered by the presence of carrion.
Sharks of the Badlands
Not to be confused with those sharks from Headstone Hell, these bad boys *smacks cars' roofs* frequent the waters off Cape Cod. With the latest in shark detection, Greg Skomal, a marine fisheries biologist, teams with cinematographer Andy Casagrande and shark researcher Kina Scollay to surveil these oceanic predators.
Shark Week starts today and will show programmes at 9pm on Discovery Channel (SingTel TV Channel 202) until 3 August.
