Abstract:

Maximum shark: Nature's perfect hunter is on the prowl. After years of protection, we may be headed for a record number of Great White Sharks patrolling the seas. And as more and more humans take to the water - the number of attacks continues to rise. Is this the eve of a new and deadlier Summer of the Shark? Or are sharks just the victims of bad press? Super Shark breaks down the evolutionary brilliance lurking within every Great White. Breakthrough science takes hold of these giant predators and deconstructs their extreme engineering, sensory sophistication, remarkable intelligence and powerful forces that drive Great Whites as they patrol the seas. From Northern California to South Africa and Australia, we relive the gripping stories of surfers, bathers, divers, spear fishermen and their harrowing encounters with giant Great Whites to reveal more and more detail of shark behaviour, physiology and intelligence. And amazing science immerses us in the world of the shark, bringing us closer to these magnificent beasts than ever before. Informative and powerful graphics are used to deconstruct and magnify the creature's amazing and extreme engineering and we employ High Def animations, computer graphics and transparent skeletal models to bring viewers alongside and inside the Great White shark.

Hammerhead highway: Equipped with more electro sensors than any other shark, extreme maneuverability, serrated teeth and an ability to swim fast have armed the Hammerhead with an amazing arsenal of survival tools. But unfortunately, indiscriminant fishing currently threatens the Hammerhead's very existence with a severe population decline in the past decade. In an ever-changing world, where skills are constantly put to the test, how will these magnificent fish continue to survive and meet the natural and unnatural challenges of today?
