Otis Barton (Beebe/Barton's 1934 Bathysphere) Revisits the Deep Sea 50 Years Later in Harbour Branch Johnson - Sea Link 1 [rough cut]

Recorded in Florida at Harbor Branch Oceanographic and in the Atlantic Ocean. This recording documents Otis Barton, pioneer underwater explorer and designer of the bathysphere (1930), as he revisits the deep sea 50 years later aboard the Johnson Sea Link 1. The recording includes drawings of the creatures that Barton encountered during his plunges during the era of the bathysphere. Following this, the recording goes on to another deep dive aboard the Johnson Sea Link 1 submersible. Included are close up images of the deep sea animal life collected during this dive. It is not mentioned whether or not Barton also took part in this dive. The bathysphere was designed by underwater explorers Otis Barton and William Beebee and took its first plunge in 1930. A bathysphere consists of a steel sphere with small circular windows of fused quartz. Inside it are the required oxygen tanks. During dives, these vessels were lowered into the water with cables and chains. During its first year, the bathysphere design could already dive to depths of 1,426 feet, two years later breaking records at 3,028 feet. Many discoveries about the deep sea were made from the confines of these vessels.

Breadalbane RPV [Remotely Piloted Vehicle] dive #2, tape 1-3 [unedited]

Captured May 9, 1981, in the Arctic Ocean in Canada's North West Passage. This recording is raw underwater footage of the Breadalbane shipwreck captured using a remote piloted vehicle (RPV, otherwise known as ROV, remote operated vehicle). This recording is almost enirely of the Breadalbane and inhabiting aquatic life. This recording is part of the Breadalbane series of tapes and therefore probably taken at the Breadalbane site in 1981 during an expedition to document and record the shipwreck by Dr. Joe MacInnis and his team. The HMS Breadalbane sunk on August 21 1853 in the Canadian Arctic. It was a British re-supply vessel that was to be the last great search for the Franklin Expedition that disappeared in 1846 in search for the North West Passage. Despite the fact that the ship took only 15 minutes to sink after colliding with ice, all men were rescued aboard the Phoenix, which was traveling with the Breadalbane. The Breadalbane shipwreck was discovered in August of 1980, by Dr. Joe MacInnis and his team, during their 3rd search expedition.

Return to the Titanic/ Titanic Drury - 1981: Grimm Harris Expedition

A documentary account of the Grimm/Harris expedition: Titanic 1981. Using sonar & other modern scientific instruments, scientists, oceanographers & film makers battle the forces of water & wind in their second attempt to locate the Titanic. The focus of the documentary is on the technology required to search for and hopefully record the ship. This is the second of two expeditions, the first was: Titanic 1980 and has also been released by the title: Search for the Titanic.

The Titanic, a passenger ship, sunk during her maiden voyage in the North Atlantic Ocean on April 15,1912, two hours and forty minutes after a collision with an iceberg on April 14, 1912. Over 1 500 people perished. The shipwreck was discovered by a team led by Robert Ballard and Jean Louis Michel in 1985.

Search for the Titanic / Grimm Expedition Titanic: Orson Welles Part 1 and 2

A documentary account of the expedition: Titanic 1980. Using sonar & other modern scientific instruments, scientists, oceanographers & film makers battle the forces of water & wind in their first attempt to locate the resting place of the Titanic and film the ill-fated ship. The primary focus of the documentary is the technology involved in locating and hopefully recording the ship. However, the film includes: a biographical account of the ship, an account of the search operation for those who persished, a grave marker for an unclaimed child, interviews with survivors, and other lesser known facts surrounding the Titanic legacy. Of interest is Orson Wells report of a lesser known late 19th century author who wrote a fictional story of a ship named Titan that perished one starry April night by colliding with an iceberg; a story that foreshadows that of the Titanic. This 1980 expedition to the Titanic is the first of two, the second is: Titanic 1981, where the team has plans to take submarine dive down to the Titanic, if it can be located.

The Titanic, a passenger ship, sunk during her maiden voyage in the North Atlantic Ocean on April 15,1912, two hours and forty minutes after a collision with an iceberg on April 14, 1912.

Titanic: Treasures of the Deep

The film is a documentary account of the preparation and descent of the Russian submersibles MIR 1 and MIR 2 into the depths of the Titanic. Hosted by Walter Cronkite. The film begins with a merger of underwater technology between North Americans and Russians, a technology pioneered by the Russians.

Two submersibles are launched on a 24-hour day schedule and the images recorded are extraordinary. The film then focuese on the treasures found in the deep; ceramics, coins, an unopened safe, as well as parts of the ship that were at this time previously unexplored and provide clues to the sinking of this massive ship.
