Famed deep-sea explorer Bob Ballard, perhaps best known for his discovery of the Titanic shipwreck in 1985, takes viewers to underwater worlds in search of answers to questions like: Where did life come from, and what made the continents? Ballard and his team travel the world to visit sites ranging from volcanoes submerged more than 3,000 feet beneath the Hawaiian islands, to shipwrecks on forgotten ancient Greek trade routes. Cameras catch previously unfilmed rock formations, lava vents and unusual species that call the ocean bottom home. To make sense of his findings, Ballard consults with leaders in modern science, among them Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin and TV personality Bill Nye.

Maritime mysteries -- old and new -- come to life in this 10-episode series, combining scientific data and digital re-creations to reveal shipwrecks, treasures, and sunken cities on the bottom of lakes, seas and oceans around the world. Innovative technology allows viewers to see what lies on the floors of large bodies of water such as the Gulf of Mexico, the Nile, the Indian Ocean, the Baltic Sea and the Atlantic Ocean as if they had been drained. Then, in a quest to explain natural wonders and man-made catastrophes, stories tell of how vessels sank, what ancient geological formations reveal about life on Earth, where Nazi secrets now reside, and why so many continue to search for the legendary city of Atlantis.
