The Cove

Free-diving wife and husband duo Mandy-Rae Cruickshank and Kirk Krack have always felt a connection to the water. But it wasn't until they got involved with the filming of a new documentary The Cove, which captures the slaughter of dolphins off the coast of Japan, that they became true environmentalists.

Mandy-Rae and Kirk talk with Dick Gordon about the dangers they faced diving into dark waters to capture footage of a dolphin net operation. And the dangers they faced on land from officials determined to continue their lucrative practices.
