Tony Robinson teams up with historian Innes McCartney to uncover the experimental origins of Britain's Submarine Service, through a series of wreck dives, underwater blast tests and hands-on demonstrations. The programme reveals how new information is helping to map the successes and failures of submarine pioneers and, with the help of Phil Harding, Tony discovers how these early machines were turned from death traps into weapons that played a vital role in the First World War.
