Descending to the depths of our oceans is where real adventure begins. No matter how tall the highest peak, how vast the broadest desert or how inhospitable the polar caps – it is all insignificant  compared  to  what  lies  beneath  the  waves. ‘Descending’ captures the thrilling adventures of Scott Wilson, Ellis Emmett and cinematographer Andre Dupuis as they journey into the depths of our world to see places and creatures few of us ever will. Nearly three quarters of our planet is water, but the team set out to not just dive our oceans, lakes and rivers, but to discover the stories of human triumph and tragedy associated with the water and assess with their own eyes the health of the unseen depths.
