Sci NC will explore stories about the great white sharks along the NC coast, why sand tiger sharks make themselves at home on shipwrecks, the changing migration patterns of blacktip sharks and what we can learn from the fossilized teeth of the prehistoric megalodon, the largest shark that has ever lived.
Additional programs examine an epic underwater attack on a great white shark, nonlethal solutions to shark attacks, sustainable shark-fishing practices and the sharks of Hawaii. Plus British naturalist Steve Backshall goes to a remote volcanic island to discover how to help protect a new generation of ocean giants.

Did you know Sharks have more than 5 senses? They actually have 7! In addition to the traditional 5 senses (sight, smell, taste, hearing & touch), sharks also have hydrodynamic perception and electroreception. This allows them to sense electricity.
Shore-based, catch and release shark fishing is a popular past time in Florida. But is it having a negative impact on sensitive shark populations? Scientists have teamed up with anglers to study the survival rates of the fish and conduct outreach on best practices.
Join Mark Evans in Australia, where seven people were killed by sharks in three years. Authorities implemented radical measures to catch and kill sharks they deem threats. Evans wants to find non-lethal solutions to keep people -- and sharks -- safe.
Did you know sharks are older than trees? Sharks have existed for more than 450 million years while the earliest trees popped up over 350 million years ago. Sharks are one of the only animals to live through every mass extinction.
An epic underwater shark attack leads investigators to search for the ocean’s most fearsome predator. However, this isn't a case of a shark attacking a human, but that of a sea creature that devoured a great white shark.
Witness, along with top divers, biologists and shark scientists, a pivotal moment in our understanding of the Great White. Feared, finned & driven to the brink of endangerment, Carcharodon carcharias reveals long-held secrets. Hosted by Franklin Raff.
