Go behind-the-scenes of a program that was top secret for decades the U.S. Navy's use of dolphins.
It is one of the strangest military programs in history, and one of the most controversial. While it is accepted that the government uses animals like dogs, rumors, innuendo and untruth has surrounded the U.S. Navy's work with dolphins.
Go beneath the waters and beyond the myths in this in-depth look at the U.S. NAVY DOLPHINS. For thirty years the U.S. Navy's Marine Mammals Facilities were classified as top secret, but now the truth about this amazing program can be told. Meet the dedicated marine biologists who train and supervise the playful and intelligent animals. See rare footage of them engaged in mine-sweeping activities in Vietnam, and visits to Hawaii and San Diego show where the program is today.
It's a remarkable look at a daring and unusual undertaking that has pushed the boundaries of inter-species communication and raised troubling moral issues.
