Soon, Crocodile Hunter's last adventure on TV

The programme that animal expert and conservationist Steve Irwin was filming when he died earlier this year will be broadcast on TV in January.

Irwin was filming off the coast of Queensland in September when he was struck through the heart by a stingray's barb; since then he has been mourned around the globe.

The Discovery Channel and Animal Planet TV networks have announced that they will simultaneously air 'Ocean's Deadliest' in the US on January 21.

Oceanographer and adventurer Phillipe Cousteau, who was aboard Irwin's boat Croc One during the expedition, narrates the 90-minute documentary, reports Contactmusic.

The special is expected to be one of the two nature channels' biggest ratings winners as fans tune in to catch a last glimpse of the Crocodile Hunter.
