Shark Week 2016, 4-10 December
Discovery Channel 24/7 Event
Premiere titles every night from 8:30pm AEDT/NZ
Everyone's favourite summertime ritual, and Subscription Television's longest running event, Shark Week returns, with seven days of sharktacular programming.
Revealing the current threats faced by the ocean's greatest predator, Shark Week delivers remarkable new insights into the lives of these magnificent creatures. This jawsome 24/7 event will explore these creatures of the deep, with 14 premiere titles at 8.30pm and 9.30pm every night. The lineup includes two documentaries filmed in Australia and narrated by Shark Week host, Andrew 'ET' Ettingshausen; Isle of Jaws and Super Predator.
The Neptune Islands off South Australia’s coastline are known for their high concentration of Great Whites, but recently, the waters have been dead quiet. Andy Casagrande and marine biologist Dr Jonathan Werry hope to locate the missing sharks in Isle of Jaws.
The search for the predator that ate a 9 foot Great White off the coast of Australia takes wildlife filmmaker Dave Riggs into the kill zone - a deep ocean battleground of Great Whites, orcas and giant squid in Super Predator.
And Abalone Wars returns for its fifth season, premiering for the first time during Shark Week. It follows the hardcore abalone dive crews of Port Lincoln, South Australia, as they risk their lives in pursuit of the prized abalone gold.
