Scientists know the enigmatic Giant Squid can reach amazing lengths of up to 18 meters, yet they have never been viewed in their natural habitat. Until now. Using two state-of-the-art submersible vessels and special ultra-sensitive, high-definition cameras, Legends of the Deep set out to record this leviathan 1,000 meters beneath the sea. The previously unseen, shimmering beauty of a giant squid lies ahead.
