A revealing look into the construction of the Titanic, one of the most famous ships in history. Filmed at the Belfast shipyard, the birthplace of the great luxury liner. Includes many historic photographs, as well as rare interviews of eyewitnesses of the construction and launch of the ill-fated liner. The sinking of the Titanic was one of the worst maritime disasters in history. The liner struck an iceberg about 95 miles south of the Grand Banks on April 14, 1912. Of the more than 2,200 persons aboard, about 1,513 died, including American millionaires John Jacob Astor IV, Benjamin Guggenheim, and Isidor Straus. The ship had been proclaimed as unsinkable, but five of the 16 watertight compartments were compromised by an iceberg and sank in less than three hours.

I've watched everything documentary on the Titanic & this is a fresh take on the actual building of the doomed ship. There is a wealth of stories about the 14, 000 plus Irishmen of Belfast who built her & the pride they took in her completion, as well as the deep-rooted shame bordering on religious superstition they felt when she faltered. My own complaint was the horridly done reenactment scenes: bad acting, bad costume, bad dialogue.
