EMI America Records to release Steve Irwin’s DVD


MUMBAI: On 19 June, EMI America Records will release the late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin’s final documentary, Ocean’s Deadliest, on DVD.

Irwin is joined by explorer and adventurer Philippe Cousteau, grandson of the famous oceanographer Jacques Cousteau, as they explore the waters of the Great Barrier Reef, the northern Cape York Peninsular, and the Southern Ocean off South Australia.

Cousteau, who was aboard Croc One with Irwin’s crew when Irwin was killed by a stingray during an underwater shoot on 6 September, 2006, narrates the 66-minute documentary.

For thousands of years, venomous snakes, saltwater crocodiles and giant sharks have patrolled the waters off of Australia. In Ocean’s Deadliest, Irwin and Cousteau join many scientific experts who study these creatures as part of their vocation, learning the reason they have evolved with such dangerous defenses and how they fill an important role in the overall ecosystem that is vital to the ocean’s survival.
