Ben Cropp is a famous shark hunter. His defence was once only a spear between himself and the shark. Now he joins the shark only a metre away armed only with a camera. In 52 years of diving, there have been many changes in Ben's remarkable career. Ben began diving back in 1950 and became a champion spearfisherman at a time when the pristine reefs were teeming with fish. In 1963 he swapped his speargun for an underwater camera and turned to making shark hunting films. Now, 40 years later, with more than 100 wildlife documentaries, Ben Cropp has become a living legend. This is the story of a Shark Hunter.
