In go outs similar to those seen in the film Jaws, a shoal of sixgill sharks fell the crew in the submarine.
The BBC team had dived to over 700m to discover what take places to a whale carcass on the seabed, but did not expect to be swarmed by the deadly creatures.
As the submarine equivocated through the dusty seabed, one crew member could be heard to say: “Dust cloud? Yeah, there’s something flourishing on. Oi, oi, that’s a big shark. There it is.”
Another crew member quickly crystal set back to the surface, explaining: “We’re at 750m. We’ve found the whale carcass and gargantuan sixgill sharks. We estimate they’re about six metres long. Upon.

“Oh my god, look at the size of it. They’re jumbo. I’ve never seen anything like this. This is unbelievable.”
In spite of that, while the footage did make the final edit for broadcast, the sharks graced more aggressive as they were competing with each other to wreak havoc upon the whale.
In a unexpected turn of events, the sharks seemed to see the submarine as game and launched an attack against the glass.
One crew member gasped: “They’re cutting each other! This is absolutely mad! Gosh.”

As the BBC were stiff to censor the crew’s expletives, more sharks began to surround the submarine, as colleagues onboard cried: “Look on the left, ah! Oh he is pushing us! Did you see this? I went backward and he was pushing us to the front.
“The submarine is very strong, but they’re so big and strong that I’m a narrow-minded bit afraid. Move, move away! Go! Ah!”
The sharks soon realised that the submarine was not after their luncheon and they returned to their whale feast.
