Review: National Geographic: The Ghost Ship

This documentary is about a group of scientist from Sweden that searched for wrecks of airplanes from world war 2. On one of their journeys, when they searched for a spyplane wreck, they discovered something weird on their radar; a ship.

It turns out its an very old sailship, loaded with goods and an story, forgotten by time, gets put together by the investigation team. Piece by piece – like a puzzle, they learn more and more about the ships whereabouts.

I thought the documentary was bit boring. I have no interest in the subject what so ever, and think they could have speeded up the story a little bit, because it was a little interesting to hear about the ship. It was only the procesess it took them to get the information that bored me.

Score: 3/6

  9. I once saw a documentary about a sunken ww2 german ship that was carrying heavy water. Interesting stuff since, if it had made it's delivery, germany would have been that much closer to having their own working nuclear weapon.
