“Expedition to the bottom” – premiere of new National Geographic series

This Sunday, 26 August, a new documentary series will premiere on the National Geographic channel – “Expedition to the bottom”. The first episode will focus on the “Graf Zeppelin”, the wreck of the first and only aircraft carrier of the Third Reich, lying in the waters of the Baltic Sea. It promises to be interesting and exciting? And this is just the beginning!

The next episodes of the series will bring even more extraordinary stories, and together with the creators, we will dive to the title bottom, in the most diverse locations around the world. Hidden in the depths are mysteries waiting to be solved! From the search for the wreckage of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, to sunken treasures, a lost Atlantis, or threats to undersea telecommunications cables.

The new National Geographic series will shed light on the mysteries of human civilisation and the history of the Earth, exploring sunken cities, shipwrecks resting on the seabed and natural wonders hidden beneath the waves. The series will premiere internationally on National Geographic in 172 countries and 43 languages.

The first episode of the series takes us to the bottom of the Baltic Sea, where the wreck of the Third Reich aircraft carrier “Graf Zeppelin” lies. The German colossus was supposed to introduce a new dimension to naval warfare, but due to a shortage of materials, it was never completed and did not take part in any battle.

[blockquote style=”2″]”In 2006, a team of Polish hydrologists made an unprecedented discovery in the middle of the Baltic Sea. Their echosounder showed a wreck almost 260 m long – the largest discovery to date in the area. Once its history was known, the find became even more interesting. Where on the high seas did the ‘Graf Zeppelin’, the only aircraft carrier in the history of the Third Reich, come from if it had never taken part in combat?”[/blockquote]

Sunk in the Oder River, it was found at a depth of 90 metres, over 300 km from the shore of the Baltic Sea. The mystery of this story will be revealed to viewers this Sunday by diver and historian Stephen Burke, who will descend to the bottom of the Baltic Sea to show National Geographic viewers the wreck of the giant Graf Zeppelin.

The next episodes of the series “Expedition to the bottom” promise to be just as exciting. Just take a look at their titles, which will raise the blood pressure a little and grab the attention of every deep-sea enthusiast:

  • Sunken treasure
  • Lost treasures of Egypt
  • Gulf of Mexico
  • Graveyard of wrecks
  • Killer Pacific
  • The Lost Worlds of the Mediterranean
  • Malaysia Airlines Flight 370
  • Secrets of the China Sea
  • Legends of Atlantis
