The explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in April 2010 focused the world's attention on the dangers looming in deep-sea oil drilling. Among the men exposed to these dangers every day are the "Delta Divers," a team of highly skilled underwater adventurers whose job is to dismantle unused or decrepit rigs. They're commercial divers who take on seemingly impossible challenges, often with low-tech equipment. It's a job where the slightest mistake could trigger a mega-catastrophe. Episodes 1.
