More about the making of the documentary can be found here. The Live Bait Squadron Society are based in The Netherlands ; many of the survivors owed their lives to two Dutch ships who rescued sailors in the water, and the Dutch people also tried to ensure that the bodies of those who perished who reached their shores were buried with honour. The Society has also been calling for the wrecks of the three ships to be protected and are opposing commercial diving on them.
