Storyline

The Baltic Sea is the final resting place for many wondrous artifacts from sunken battleships to sealed champagne bottles dating back over a hundred years. In June of 2011, a Swedish expedition company detected the outline of an object which one could literally characterize as "out of this world". If proven true, the uncovering of an unidentified flying object in Earth's waters will certainly constitute the most meaningful archeological find in human history. The thrilling documentary The Mystery Beneath traces this unprecedented underwater excavation project, and chronicles the challenges, media fervor, and anonymous threats that plagued explorers along the way.

An expedition of this magnitude requires vast resources and generous funding. With this in mind, the team decided to go public with their initial findings. The scientific community understood the implications of such a discovery and was justifiably intrigued. Mass media was quick to sensationalize the discovery, and stoked the inflamed rhetoric of conspiracy theorists and fear mongerers. Could this enigmatic structure - which bore a striking resemblance to the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars in early sonar images - actually be a doomsday device in waiting? The need for answers was great, and the expedition team were soon given the tools they needed to find them.

In their attempts to relocate and ultimately identify the object, the explorers must contend with the possibility of surveillance from surrounding countries, malfunctioning equipment, and a series of perilous environmental factors and safety concerns. Viewers will gain a deep respect for these treasure hunters, particularly the divers who risk death in the depths of a black sea for the chance to make history.

Finding and documenting the object is only the beginning. Once the divers collect samples and visual documentation of the mystery structure, the team must work feverishly to decode even more clues, salvage their reputations amidst growing public skepticism, and defend against an increasingly antagonistic press and harrowing personal threats. The journey produces bouts of giddy wonder and deflated morale in equal measure.

The Mystery Beneath is a pulse pounding adventure into the unknown, but it's also an inspiring portrait of human curiosity and resolve.

    That's what I call- ****cumentary. No subject (just strange shaped rock), no conclusions or evidence, nothing. Just cheap tension, that soooon something will happen... sooon you will see.... nothing.
    Buy our t-shirts, so we could keep on renting this old boat and drink beer from dusk till down and keep on informing you about rock- is it still there, or flew away.

    Boo, hiss - I wasted an hour watching this discovery show about a mystery object !underwater that turns out not to have any discernible meaning.Great job, everyone! Hope this isn't the beginning of a new trend in scientific documentaries. If it is, the show should warn the viewer. "Nothing to see here, keep moving, folks."

    Thx for brave and persistent people like this. Without them how many discoveries and breakthroughs would we have not had? How many would we never find? Be safe and may your discoveries be world renowned. Persevere my friends.

    This was a waste of time. Fortunately, rather than waste time watching pointless activity, I scrolled to the end. Very little there.

    keep it up guys, don't let the naysayers get to you. What you are doing is FUNDAMENTALLY important UFO or not. A hell of a lot more interesting than a certain tv series about trees and an island now THAT'S a waste of time. If people like you were not there to check these things out we would miss out on so much. GOOD LUCK and if you need a deckhand/technician let me know!!
