(from Smithsonian Channel's press release, December 2018) From pleasure cruises to cargo carriers, even the calmest boat trips can end in tragedy. In the aftermath of the world's most destructive naval catastrophes, loved ones and investigators are often left with unsatisfying answers. Following its acclaimed series AIR DISASTERS, which has uncovered shocking revelations behind aviation calamities for 11 seasons, Smithsonian Channel expands its search for the truth into the world of maritime incidents. New series DISASTERS AT SEA premieres Sunday, January 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Smithsonian Channel. When men and women lose their lives on ships at sea, what little evidence remains must be examined carefully to explain what went wrong and why. Using interviews, documentary footage and dramatic re-enactments, DISASTERS AT SEA takes viewers aboard ship to witness the human drama of such disasters, then follows the investigation to piece together the causes of some of the most significant maritime incidents of the last 50 years.
