" Deep - sea ​​diving goes back as far as the early 18th century, with the development of experimental atmospheric suits. Although we don ' t know of the first instance of the filming of a deep - sea diver at work, this is footage from 1911 Certainly one of the earliest. Shot at the mouth of Florida ' s St. John ' s River, it Demonstrates the careful preparations Necessary for a successful dive. "

Anyone who is interested in the subject and is longing for sound, is also the instructional film of the US Navy from the year 1944 to the heart.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
