Jaws stunned the world when it hit the screens in 1975, breaking all existing box office records and grossing $470 million dollars worldwide. Terror gripped the globe as a 25-foot great white shark captured the world's attention, and made sure no one ever felt safe going into the water again. The film made its young director Steven Spielberg a superstar, won three Oscars® and inspired numerous imitations and countless shark phobias. This special celebrates the classic movie, looking back at the film's origins as a bestselling novel, adapted to become the first real summer blockbuster. For those who created it, the making of Jaws was as much an adventure as the movie itself. The ground-breaking film took the collaborative process to new heights and the cast and crew look back fondly on the experience, whilst remembering what an incredibly difficult job it was. Filming on location in the Atlantic presented a new challenge every day, as did 'Bruce' the mechanical shark, which constantly broke down. With the script being re-written every 24 hours, in advance of filming, the constant pressure on the whole cast and crew was immense. There were times when everyone wondered if the film would ever be completed. With fascinating insights from Steven Spielberg, the cast and many of the crew about the locations, the casting process and the day-to-day challenges of the shoot, along with many happier memories and anecdotes, this programme offers a fresh new perspective on one of the greatest movies of our time.
