The Real Jaws

Like the movie, Jaws, shark attack is one of our worst nightmares. In the waters off Western Australia, 5 deaths in just 10 months shocked the local community and scientists.

And off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, a dramatic increase in sightings of Great White sharks is putting swimmers at risk. What's caused this surge in fatal attacks? What triggers a shark's attack on a human? Scientists delve into shark biology... exploring how they sense their world.. understanding their behaviour... and race to find new ways to stop sharks before they bite.
