Greg, You have found the documentary made after the 1993 expedition made by Dr Bob Ballard.

It is a good doco. all the survivors are now gone.
I'd like to get a multizone DVD version with the extra material that was on some of the videos.
cheers

Hi, Martin. There is one survivor remaining, plus one child we never traced who could conceivably still be alive!

Mrs. Pearl was pregnant. One wonders if this in utero survivor is still alive.

Jim that would be a stretch- in utero survivor.

Is a creature said to be alive before birth?
Umbilically connected and totally dependendent on carrier? I realise this could be treading on controversial ground.

Not really a stretch. There were over twenty expectant mothers on the ship. Florence Padley's child was born. Minnie Smith's wasnt. Amy Pearl's child was born. Marguerite Kay's wasnt. The infants that were born, in one case a week later and in another seven months later, were present. They survived. They are, however tenously, something that was alive and aboard the ship on May 7th.

As the first of two uploads il do since i got the DVD version of the Doc is the behind the scenes footage of it! Here's hoping NATGEO does not take it down, but since its been out of print since 2003 i dont think they will care
