Diving in the dark: exploring underground realms

A film exploring the important collaboration between cave divers and scientists pushing the boundaries of human limits to fully understand life on earth and how it evolved. Original interviews with the world's leading cave divers and Museum scientists reflect on how to cope with exploring the deepest, darkest most dangerous zones, where fewer people have been than have walked on the moon. Narrated by Pearl Mackie, this original film was an installation piece, shown across two screens in the Natural History Museum's exhibition "Life in the Dark".
