We spent three days with the British film crew in the Bahamas. During the many interviews, we stated the following:

a) The islands of Andros and Bimini were a single land mass in about 10,000 BC. We stated the belief that the Bimini Road and the Andros Platform were possibly harbors for small ports, basically way-stations between Cuba and other islands in the Atlantic. We carefully explained during the filmed interviews that the Center City of Atlantis, described by Plato as a circular formation of about 5-6 miles in diameter, was not what we had found at Andros nor was it at Bimini. In fact, Plato described the main island of Atlantis, with the Center City, as hundreds of miles in length (more precisely 550 km by 370 km). Of course, Plato's dimensions of the island of Atlantis were also ignored in the show. Again, the reason was simple: neither Malta nor Thera were large enough to meet that criteria given by Plato.

We stated that we believed the Center City was at Cuba, in the Zapata Peninsula. I gave them a stunning satellite photo of Zapata showing a circular island that is now underwater, lying about 50 feet under a muddy surface. The island is 6 miles in diameter and has several clearly defined bands encircling it. I also gave them archaeological information on a network of ancient canals that have been found leading into the circular area at Zapata leading from mountains in the north. All of this information was ignored.

We also supplied extensive underwater footage from Andros and took quite a bit while we were there. Some of the images are spectacular and leave little doubt that the formation is manmade. That particular trip to Andros found a set of what appears to be stone steps leading up to the top of the platform where a perfectly aligned row of flat stone blocks, all rectangular and of the same size, was on the summit. Less than 10 seconds of our footage was used, and none of the best was shown. In fact, it seemed that the worst footage was chosen for the show. The remainder of the footage shown was from Bimini, and it was all taken many years ago by a local diver--not us. I did refer them to this group to obtain the footage of Bimini. It is clear footage, but not the best from the Bimini Road. The show also showed several scenes with divers, but only 5-6 seconds of it was of us. I have no idea who was being shown as the narrator described our efforts.
