Series following the high adrenaline adventures of a team of divers as they explore and film the depths of the world's greatest river system
Mike deGruy and Kate Humble lead an international team of scientists and divers as they search for species new to science in the Amazon River. It is the climax of the diving expedition as the team explores a 90-metre chasm at the very bottom of the Amazon River. Scientists have no idea what lurks within. The team also explores overgrown jungle streams in search of giant caiman and electric eels - a fish that can stun you with a 600-volt shock. As the expedition draws to a close, the divers prepare to jump into the depths of the river to confront and film the extraordinary fish that lie in the abyss.
The bottom of the Amazon River is home to many of the strangest and fiercest creatures in the world.

The darkness also hides many dangers - anaconda, piranha, giant catfish, stingray and caiman. Mike deGruy and Kate Humble join the international team of scientists and divers as they search for species new to science and come face to face with the monsters of the deep.
