Alien Deep

The Pisces IV sub explores a sunken World War II Japanese midget submarine. The midget submarine was sunk by the USS Ward in what is considered the first shot fired by the US at the start of the war, an hour before the air strike began.

About the Show

The Alien Deep. It’s a place in the sea, thousands of feet beneath the surface, far from the first crack of light, where the planet’s last and greatest secrets hide in the cold darkness of endless night. In this five-part series, Dr. Robert Ballard, famed explorer who found the Titanic at its final resting place, takes viewers into these underwater worlds where no man has gone before.
