A demolition team’s mission to sink the USS Oriskany, a 900-foot long aircraft carrier, the most complex and best built ship in naval warfare and to create the largest artificial reef in the world. Battling through 4 inch thick steel plating and hazardous waste, the team discovers the secret of sinking an aircraft carrier, and in the process, writes a new chapter in marine demolition.

The USS Oriskany was built not to sink, but to withstand missiles and bomb hits during a war.

She operated primarily in the Pacific into the 1970s, in both the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

The courageous demolition team must go through tight tunnels throughout the ship, making sure everything is removed that could be harmful to the environment, meeting all safety codes.

I’ll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant

I'll Have It My Way with Hattie Bryant

“The medicalization of American life from birth to death is killing our souls.”

– Hattie Bryant

As much as we all want to believe we can live forever, we all know deep down that it simply can’t be true.

From this program viewers learn that there are things each of us can do to live fully, all the way to the end. Anyone who is willing to take four simple steps now, while healthy, can minimize if not avoid entirely, the pain, suffering, confusion and disagreements that can arise when end-of-life healthcare wishes are not clearly spelled out.

Americans need this information because 70% say they want to die peacefully surrounded by friends and family … while actually 70% are dying in institutions surrounded by strangers.

Few people choose to contemplate critical illness or the inevitability of death until their time comes. Because possibilities are rarely discussed, many people are unprepared or unable to make critical end-of-life decisions and spend their last days in over-medicalized and unnecessarily painful and protracted situations.

Breaking through the taboo of discussing death, Hattie Bryant shows that we have choices.
