The true story of a fatal experiment.  In 1912 Broome was as much Asian as Australian.  The town thrived on the hugely profitable, and extremely dangerous peral-shell indstury.  Racial tensions simmered uneasily between whites, Asian and Aborigines.  In that year, twelve British Roayl Navy-trained divers and their tenders were sent to Broome to take part in the White Experiment.  Their task was to master the perilous art of pearl-shell diving.  The White Divers of Broome tells the extraodinary, true sotry of this experiment and its fatal aftermath.
