The 1990 American smash hit film, The Hunt for Red October, starring Sean Connery, Alec Baldwin, Sam Neil and Scott Glenn, tells the story of a rogue Soviet nuclear submarine attempting to defect to the US while being hunted by both the American and Soviet Navies.

Based on the best-selling novel by Tom Clancy, it reveals the technology, drama and character of an underwater, Cold War battle.

What few realise, however, is Clancy’s book and the movie based on it, were inspired by a classified nuclear confrontation that that some believe changed the course of world history.

Now, for the first time, the extraordinary events behind this occurrence can be revealed.

The Real Hunt for Red October premieres Sunday, 13 June at 7.30pm on SBS and On Demand
