In 2011 James Cameron was honoured as a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence.
National Geographic support Cameron’s work by funding and broadcasting documentaries that trace his deep-sea exploration. The National Maritime Museum is delighted that National Geographic is an official media partner of the Challenging the Deep exhibition.
Below are two videos National Geographic created when James was in Sydney in late May 2018 to officially open the exhibition.
