Tek Sing - China’s Titanic
The South China Sea is a fabulous hunting ground for treasure hunters. This unique programme tells the remarkable story of the search for the Tek Sing, a Chinese junk which sank in 1822 on the Belvidere Reef with the loss of nearly 2000 lives and its valuable cargo.
A butterfly flutters its wings in Texas and the seemingly imperceptible turbulence sets in motion a cascade of effects that culminates in a typhoon in Indonesia. It seems unreal. But the realisation of the butterfly effect as it has been called, is one of the astonishing results of the new science of Chaos.
Our producer’s global reputation has been built on their ability to take difficult areas of science and technology, and turn them into highly entertaining and immensely accessible programs. Their range is wide across the field, from the mysteries of Chaos theory and the engineering challenge of building bridges a mile long, to the fascinating stories behind the design of the Spitfire, and the great WW II epic story of the Dambusters Raid.
