Summary The "unsinkable" Titanic was a dream come true. Four city blocks long, she was the pride of the White Star Line. Yet, just before midnight on April 12, 1912 the ship sideswiped an iceberg, tearing a hole nearly 200 feet long in the hull, sinking the ship in two hours. Using newsreels, diarie and interviews with survivors, the video charts the fateful history of the ship and its passengers, as well as the pop cilture phenomenon the tragedy has become. From the ship's construction to the deep sea expeditions uncovering its sunken secrets, this is the comprehensive story of the Titanic.
