Mighty Ships 4

Image 1 / 10

Super-size series 'Mighty Ships' returns, providing exclusive access to some of the world's most extraordinary working ships. Featuring stunning visuals from aboard these vessels, take an in-depth look at the mechanics of each ship and the intricate relationships of the people on board. Whether it is heavy-lift mega-ships or combat ships, this fascinating series is as much about what happens inside the vessels, as the journey that each one makes. Season highlights include: DSV Skandi Arctic, the biggest and newest saturation dive support ship, and a lifeline for aquanauts working dangerous jobs hundreds of metres under the sea; Stena Britannica, a car carrier, cargo transport and cruise ship all rolled into one, making her the most technically advanced "super" ferry in the world; research icebreaker, CCGS Amundsen, built to battle frozen extremes in order to understand how global warming will radically change life in the Arctic, and USCGC Bertholf, constructed for U.S. Homeland Security, to patrol the high seas, looking for drugs, weapons, human trafficking, piracy and traditional search-and-rescue missions.
