Summary This is the epic story of the greatest gold salvage in history, narrated by renowned actor, Sam Neill. In 1940, the Bank of England tried to ship eight tons of gold to America to buy arms for Britain. The ship, the RMS Niagara, hit a German mine and sank off New Zealand. Its salvage was arranged by one man, who invented a way of working 600 feet underwater, assembled a motley crew, refloated a rusty ship and sailed into the middle of the minefield to search for the Niagara. The film includes original footage shot during the salvage by American cinematographer J.M. Leonard
