“Of Sharks and Men” shows for the first time in HD complete story of humans and sharks, with all the fear, blood shed and reverence it embodies. We examine the relationship between sharks and men – what it is now, how it used to be, and why it came to be this way. We explain what sharks really mean to us – and what we really mean to them. From Shark Fin Soup to habitat destruction, we show what humans are doing to drive sharks into extinction. And we show the profound impact that their extinction would have on every last one of us. To showcase the relationship between sharks and men, we travel the world (South Africa, Florida, Bahamas) to find the most interesting, most bizarre and most intriguing stories of human-shark-interaction. We show cutting-edge shark science and talk to psychologists, we hear from the victims of shark attacks how their experiences have changed their lives, and explore the myths and misconceptions the media has spread about sharks.
