What is the final entry in the log book of the U 260?
SILENT WATERS, RUNNING DEEP is a visual documentary on two levels, the first is a look back and interview with the surviving crew of the U 260, their thoughts and emotions and the second is the latter day physical search for the underwater resting place of the U-260.
The latter day search for the boat is important, apart from providing stunning visual for the documentaries narrative, it's structural analysis will provide a number of important clues as to how the U 260 met her end. The official report is that she was scuttled after hitting a mine and become unmanageable, there are however, conflicting testimonies which appear to have a more valid answer.
The documentary which will be one hour in length and will contain underwater footage, WW 2 archive footage and present day interviews to build up a comprehensive picture of what happened aboard the U 260. The underwater footage will also enable the use of a remote camera to see for the first time in nearly sixty years, into the dark interior of the U 260's silent hull.
