It was one of the worst disasters in maritime history. On September 28, 1994, the ferry Estonia was navigating heavy seas off the Finnish coast when she began to take in water. Less than an hour later, the ship had sunk. Of the nearly 1,000 people aboard, only 137 managed to escape.
DEEP SEA DETECTIVES examines the official government report and contrasts its findings with the theories of other investigators who believe that the whole story is not being told. German reporter Jutta Rabe tells of her dive expedition on the wreck, which the Swedish Navy tried to stop, and Dr. Jan de Kat of the Marin institute uses 3-D computer modeling to show why the official report does not adequately explain the Estonia's fate.
Finally, survivors of the disaster share their harrowing memories of the ferry's last minutes.
