Master of the deep


This interview was first published in New Scientist print edition

Film director James Cameron's film Titanic was the most successful movie of all time, winning 11 Academy Awards.

His sequel to Alien made $80 million and his Terminator movies were even bigger.

Amazingly he is also building a formidable reputation as a deep-ocean explorer.

He funds expeditions and pioneers new technology so he can film his discoveries, educating both researchers and public.

Earlier this year, he was in the UK to receive an honorary doctorate from the University of Southampton for his contribution to marine science, technology and maritime archaeology. Claire Ainsworth caught up with him there.
