Imagine living in a box at the bottom of the sea for a month at a time. Locked away in a saturation chamber, plumbed to depths of more than 500 feet, this has been David Beckett's love, life and work for his adult life. Turning his back on a life as a pig farmer and taking the plunge as a saturation diving specialist, it's a fascinating tale of life at the bottom of the sea: diving for treasure, recovering shipwrecks and the gruesome task of pulling bodies from the water.
