4 Hour Movie in 2 Parts
Based on Jules Vernes' classic tale of Captain Nemo and the crew of the Nautilus as they explore and confront the dangers of the unknown world beneath the seas. The year is 1886, when New England's fishing harbours are the scene for a "creature of uknown origin" destroying ships at sea. It is the job of Professor Pierre Aronnax, a marine expert, and Ned Land, the iron willed sailor, to learn the truth of the "monster" roaming the seas. The great novelist, Jules Verne, describes this perilous journey of the darkest depths of the sea with captain Nemo aboard the Nautilus.
