Shark Gordon - Most Dangerous Moments
Encountering a shark is most peoples worst nightmare, but for Ian Gordon no amount of terrifyingly close calls can stop him pushing the limits with these ultimate predators. This DVD is a compilation of the most dangerous encounters from his incredible series.
The Great White
Legendary shark-diver, Ian Gordon, gets closer than most would dare as he introduces us to one of the most feared animals on earth. Great whites have a nasty reputation for unprovoked attacks on humans, but Ian believes they are thinking, social animals not just cold killing machines. Also included is an intriguing documentary revealing the terrifying prospect that the Great White Sharks are living and hunting in packs as a pattern of horrific local attacks off the waters of Chatham Island, 500 miles east of New Zealand, suggest.
The Whale and Mako Shark
Ian Gordon meets up with Whale Sharks and attempts to uncover the mysteries of their oceanic wanderings. Ian also gets up close and personal with the deadly Mako shark at the Poor Knights Islands, 12 miles off the coast of New Zealand, where local residents fear that, sooner or later, someone will be attacked. Ian cant resist climbing out of the dive cage and feeding them first hand to find out.
The Galapagos and Tiger Shark
Ian Gordon takes us to the balmy isolation of the tropical Midway Atoll in the Pacific Ocean to test the temperament of the little known Galapagos Shark. Ian then sets out to prove that massive Tiger sharks patrolling Hawaiian beaches do not deserve their maneating reputation. Although there were 33 attacks on humans in Hawaii during the 1990s, two of them fatal, Ian doesnt think the Tiger Sharks biology means they could ever make a habit out of killing humans.
The White Tip Shark
Ian Gordon meets one of his favourite species and the one that makes him most nervous the Oceanic White Tip. He talks to a survivor of one of World War IIs most horrible sinkings, who watched while hundreds of his crewmates fell victim to the jaws of the sailors nightmare. Ian then takes his 16-year-old son, Lee, on a volunteer shark research mission off the Australian coast to meet the White Tip Sharks of Osprey Reef face to face
The Grey Nurse and Port Jackson Shark
Ian Gordon takes us along on a 1000-mile (1600km) air rescue mission flying a precious 8ft (2.4 metre) female Grey Nurse Shark from Mooloolaba Seaworld on Australias Sunshine Coast to the new Melbourne Aquarium. But as we discover its a risky procedure transporting a 230 pound (104kg) shark by airline freighter! Ian then takes us to Jervis Bay, south of Sydney, for the Port Jackson shark breeding season where he hopes to clear up a long-held mystery surrounding their eggs.
The Hammerhead and Prickly Sharks
Shark Gordon takes us to El Bajo, an underwater seamount in Mexicos Sea of Cortez, to witness the legendary Scalloped Hammerhead school reunion. But before this amazing spectacle is revealed Ian Gordon and his crew must overcome storms, poor water visibility and difficult diving conditions. Later they brave dangerous depths, extreme cold and technically difficult diving conditions to get up close and personal with the mysterious and rarely seen Prickly Shark.
Thresher Sharks and Man Eaters
Ian Gordon dodges dynamite blasts to check out an unusual gathering of Pelagic Thresher Sharks in waters off the island of Cebu, in the Philippines. Ian sets out to prove his theory that these sharks are using this area as a cleaning station.
Ian then takes on one of his most daring experiments yet as he drops in on an ocean classroom in the Bahamas where students dive amongst feeding sharks in their bid to understand why sharks attack people and what can be done to stop them.
