Catalina under the sea
Scope and Contents
Off the coast of California, the Catalina Islands offer excellent underwater scenes of plants and creatures. In a live underwater broadcast, the first ever produced, Charles Collingwood puts on his diving suit and dives with Ken Norris, oceanographer at Marineland in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. They discuss plants, such as a kelp forest, and much of the examination is centered on the type of underwater photographic equipment used in this unique broadcast.
