Summary, etc.: "Lost relics of the sea: Jacques cousteau and the Calypso crew journey across two seas--Mediterranean and Caribbean--to recover the remains of great ships. Off northern Crete they find skulls, scattered bones and round pellets of grape-shot fired in a 300-year-old battle and at another site, 1st-century Roman jars. Their biggest wreck is uncovered at Martinique. In 1902, 30,000 people died when Mount Pele erupted and a harbor of ships disappeared into the depths. But at 150 feet, Cousteau's divers sight the Roraima--broken in two but intact. The Warm-blooded sea--mammals of the deep: Marine mammals--dolphins, whales, seals--share a common, ancient heritage with man. Cousteau travels from the South Pacific to the Florida Keys, South Carolina and Argentina to understand their evolution and unique behavior. Among some ... footage: in South Carolina's salt marshes, we observe dolphins herding fish into shallow water and onto dry land--the dolphins actually leave the water--before scooping up the fish and eating them."--Container.
