Season 2016, Episode 10 The Hunt for HMAS Sydney

The Hunt for HMAS Sydney Apr 14, 2016 After 13 days a sea, the search team on board SV Geosounder found what they and the nation have waited 67 years for - HMAS Sydney II has been discovered. Less than a day after Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced the expedition had successfully located the German raider Kormoran, Sydney was located 12.2 nautical miles away, at a depth of 2,468 metres. The Search team is conducting side-scan sonar imaging of the site before returning to Geraldton to gear up for the next phase of the search. An ROV (remotely operated vehicle) will then be sent down to the wrecks of the Sydney and also Kormoran to film and photograph the wrecks. On March 3rd 2008 the vessel SV Geosounder set sail from Geraldton, Western Australia to find the resting place of the HMAS Sydney II, which was tragically lost in November 1941 in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Western Australia with its entire crew of 645, following a fierce engagement with the German raider HSK Kormoran. The 1,800 sq nautical mile search area is positioned in deep waters offshore from Carnarvon, Western Australia and based on accounts of the battle given by survivors of the Kormoran and research completed by The Finding Sydney Foundation, David Mearns and UWA's Kim Kirsner. Compared to the search area of less than 500km² for the Titanic and the Bismarck, the challenges posed by this search were significantly greater, despite recent technological advances. The entire search is being covered by an independent documentary film team from Electric Pictures, who are working with Film Australia to produce the upcoming ABC TV documentary, The Hunt for HMAS Sydney, premiering Tuesday April 15 at 8.30pm on ABC1.
