23RD ANNUAL SHARK WEEK SHOWS THE APEX PREDATOR AS NEVER BEFORE: High-Tech, High-Definition Cameras Enable Viewers to See the Power of Sharks in Ways Not Possible Until Now - (Silver Spring, Md.) - Off the coast of South Africa, massive one-ton great white sharks blast from the water at 25 mph, with almost nowarning, to pull a sneak attack on the seals that congregate there. Ten years ago, Discovery Channel premiered AIR JAWS which explored this phenomenon. It was an instant hit that still remains the fifth most-watched SHARK WEEK special of all time. But that was before HD. Now, producer Jeff Kurr goes back to the scene to investigate the aerial attacks armed with state-of-the-art equipment in the one-hour special ULTIMATE AIR JAWS, kicking off cable's longest-running event - SHARK WEEK 2010 - on Sunday, August 1 at 9 PM ET/PT.
Using the very latest in technology, including an HD camera that shoots in super slow motion - 2,000 frames per second, or 20 to 30 timesslower than "typical" slow motion footage - Kurr and shark expert Chris Fallows slow down the footage of a breaching shark from one second inreal time to almost a full minute. The unparalleled resolution provides so much detail that you can literally count every tooth in the shark'smouth. Fallows and Kurr also employ a submarine and remotely operated helicopter to capture this incredible footage. Technology also plays a key role in INTO THE SHARK BITE, a special where viewers can watch the power of a shark bite filmed with the latesthigh-speed, high-definition cameras from extraordinary angles - ending up literally inside the jaws of sharks.

Especially since he will not have the protection of a cage. Everything Ferguson sees and experiences reminds him of what he has learned from watching the Discovery Channel. Woven into Ferguson's journey are clips from the scariest, most exciting moments of the last 20 years of Shark Week. The results are funny, scary, and ultimately very moving.

Sharks: Are They Hunting Us?
Nothing captures headlines like a shark attack. Each account clouds the waters with information that fuels our fear but may not provide all the facts. Are sharks really pack hunters like lions or wolves? Are they acquiring a taste for human flesh? Are attacks on the rise? Sometimes it's hard to tell if the monster is just a myth. So what's the truth about man-eating sharks? In this one-hour documentary, we will expose the line between what's real and what's not.

His unique brand of animal behavior researchincludes getting up close and very personal with his subjects. He's even infiltrated a pride of lions. Can his experience with man-eating catstranslate to man-eating sharks?
When it comes to sharks, Dave doesn't know the first thing. But he's willing to learn and over the course of six acts, Dave seeks to determine forhimself if sharks are the man-eaters they are said to be. His goal is to get as close to the giant Great Whites as he has to lions-by free divingwith them off the coast of South Africa. Before he's willing to put his life on the line for the shark's reputation, Dave has a few things he's going to have to learn:
In his quest for the truth, Dave will interview experts, attack victims and shark entrepreneurs. All will give Dave their own take on the myth ofman-eating sharks. In every act, there will be a moment where Dave is testing his new information in the water by interacting with sharks,swimming one stroke closer to his ultimate encounter.
A combination of in-your-face cinema verite camera work and a personal diary video-cam will document Dave's journey. Carefully selectedarchival footage and attack recreates will help Dave put it all in perspective.
