  dvd

 

A DVD has been made, content includes... some history of this ship that sailed
under many names. Extensive filming of the wreck with Helicopter fly-overs.
English or German narration, a must for those wishing to say "Goodbye" as during the filming, a violent storm almost finished her off.
Produced by the "Explorer Magazine" Select the "More Info" link for more details & purchasing details. I have seen it, its great!
