Great Lakes Shipwrecks Special

Erik Wood

Tonight, September the 15th at 10:00PM eastern a special will be shown on the Discovery Science Channel on shipping and shipwrecks of the Great Lakes.

David Brown and I are featured (more David then I) in this program. I haven't seen it yet, but look forward to seeing it and hearing reviews.

Unfortunately, we don't get the Discovery Science Channel up here. What a shame, as I was hoping that it would be on the Discovery Channel. Hopefully, I'll be able to see it at some point.
New NatGeo special to re-air on Sunday May 14 6pm ct.


The discovery of a human skull in the depths of Lake Superior begins a story that will take historian and author Brendon Baillod across two Great Lakes and a century of history. It takes him and a team of elite technical divers more than 20 miles off Milwaukee where they discover the wreck of one of Lake Michigans lost queens. It takes them to the remote waters of Lake Superior where they risk their lives to determine the identity of yet another lost ship. And it takes us into the forgotten life of a brave and stubborn woman who lived, and died, on these wild waters. Whether her presence cursed these lost ships, or a more earthly explanation can be found, the Great Lakes reputation as a graveyard for mariners stands firm.

I saw this on Wednesday and thought it was well done and really interesting in not only did they find the LR Doty but also the Olive Jeanette too.
