Drain the Oceans, Egypt’s Lost Wonders

Produced by Mallison Sadler Productions for National Geographic, Past Preservers provided Dr Bob Bianchi.

Maritime mysteries — old and new — come to life in this 10-episode series, combining scientific data and digital re-creations to reveal shipwrecks, treasures, and sunken cities on the bottom of lakes, seas and oceans around the world. Innovative technology allows viewers to see what lies on the floors of large bodies of water such as the Gulf of Mexico, the Nile, the Indian Ocean, the Baltic Sea and the Atlantic Ocean as if they had been drained. Scientific data, combined with computer graphics, drain the Nile’s waters – and surrounding sand – revealing a lost wonder of the ancient world, monumental fortresses and the origins of ancient Egyptians’ obsession with the afterlife.
