RTD’s freediving documentaries uncover the magic that compels freedivers to risk their lives without equipment underwater. An RTD crew follow one of Russia’s top freedivers, Andrey Matveenko, as he attempts to set a record under the ice of the White Sea, and tell the bittersweet story of freediving legend Natalia Molchanova. RTD free diving documentaries also take you to Egypt, to meet the next generation of freedivers, born... in a birthing pool.
