The White Divers of Broome, The true story of a fatal experiment
John Bailey

In 1912, 12 Royal Navy divers and tenders were sent to Broome in Australia to take part in the ‘White Experiment’ to master pearl diving and overcome the Asian stranglehold on the pearling industry. It is about town where shell mattered more than human life – an extraordinary true story with a fatal aftermath.
