The Real Hunt for Red October
The blockbuster movie The Hunt for Red October tells the story of a rogue Soviet nuclear submarine attempting to defect to the US while being hunted by both the American and Soviet Navies. Based on the best-selling novel by Tom Clancy, it reveals the technology, drama and character of an underwater battle. What few realise is the book and film were inspired by a classified nuclear confrontation that some believe changed the course of world history.
This two part docu-drama reveals, for the first time, the astonishing secret story behind the Russian submarine, Red October, that went missing on March 8, 1968, taking the Soviet Union and U.S. to the brink of war.
