Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Richard Basehart, narrator of many an earlier "true life" documentary, serves as director for Treasure Galleons. This is the 96-minute account of the recovery of Spanish gold from the perilous depth of the Bermuda Triangle. Transferred via Armada in 1715, the gold was lost as sea during a shipwreck. Using state-of-the-art equipment (for 1973, that is), a team of divers seeks out the long-hidden booty. Though listed as a TV documentary, Treasure Galleons does not appear in any 1973 network listings, indicating that the film was syndicated on a city-by-city basis.
