Very well done and some AMAZING computer graphics.
Wow. What a great documentary. The CG (computer graphics) is worthy of a Hollywood blockbusters. Just very well put together and entertaining. Congratulations on such wonderful work. From the producing to the rendering this is just brilliantly put together. If you have any interest in submarines, then this show is for you. I hope they put it out on DVD. I would be interested in seeing the research that went in to it. Also, I'd like to see the production pipeline that created the wonderful CG images. I think this idea should be pursued in serial form. Of all the documentaries from Nat Geo I think this is one of the best.
