TX Time: 23h00
Genre: Nature, Reality, Wildlife, Special

Located 46 miles off the coast of Belize, the Blue Hole is known around the world for its crystal-clear water and its abundance of sharks and sea life. But this remote spot has only ever been fully explored once – back in 1971 by legendary ocean expert Jacques Cousteau himself.

The Blue Hole has never been mapped or even plotted – and while many speculate what is at the bottom – the exact answer remains unknown. To find out, Discovery has tapped a team of the world's leading explorers who will venture down to its bottom in a fully-manned submersible.

The on-board exploration team will include businessman/philanthropist Sir Richard Branson; explorer Fabien Cousteau, grandson of Jacques Cousteau; and Erika Bergman, the submersible's pilot. The special will pick up from where Cousteau left off – exploring the Blue Hole in real time and attempting to shed light on its many mysteries.
