Not new, but a great show. If you haven't seen it, it is well worth watching.

It was a great show. Hadn't seen it before, but it's a must-see when you get a chance. Serious treatment of cave divers and their equipment, plus great underwater footage of the systems. Excellent scientific work on paleotonlogy, archaeology, geology, and climatology. The lengthwise cross section of the stalagmite showing the major climate change events, and tracking of the iron back to the Sahara was fascinating. Dedicated in memory of Wes Skiles. Glad we watched.

It was a great show. It was interesting to see all the formations that form only in dry caves, which are now totally flooded.
