The Screen Guide

It's been called the Graveyard of the Pacific, and the most desolate place on earth. Middleton Reef, near Australia in the Coral Sea, is an ocean cemetary which has taken more ships and lives than any other reef. Almost every year, its jagged coral outcrops claim another victim, and in this program A Big Country runs the gauntlet of the Disaster Reef to provide a rare look at one of the most dangerous places in the world.
