SS Commodore on CBS Saturday Morning
North Norfolk’s “miles of sandy beaches and historic fishing villages” have been presented to millions of viewers across the United States with the discovery of a wreck.
Chris Taylor, a filmmaker from Sheringham, was snorkeling when he came across the remains of the SS Commodore circulating near the town in 1896.
Although the wreckage was previously identified, it was covered in sand, and Mr Taylor’s underwater and drone footage of his remains caused a stir in September.
Mr. Taylor has now been interviewed about the discovery on CBS Saturday Morning, which is based in New York City and watched by approximately three million US viewers.
Mr Taylor said: “I was delighted that they introduced it by talking about the ‘miles of sandy beaches’ it’s good for the area. It was an interesting experience – we talked for about eight minutes but they only used about 10 seconds. ”
Mr. Taylor is now considering making a longer film on the SS Commodore, in collaboration with Sue Gresham.
