Everyone knows that an iceberg sank The Titanic, leaving more than 1,500 people to perish in what is now known to be one of the greatest maritime disasters in history. But this striking new film argues that it was actually a long chain of misjudgements, human errors and misfortunes that sealed the fate of the largest liner of its day, her passengers and crew. Had just one link in that chain been missing, this historic disaster may have been averted. Made by the team behind Channel 4's previous re-examination of the Hindenburg disaster, the film draws on the latest research as well as eyewitness testimonies to reconstruct the story from the point of view of those involved, and de-bunk the many myths that have built up surrounding the Titanic. With the benefit of materials from the wreckage, examining forensic evidence and piecing together historical records and Government transcripts, the contributory factors behind the disaster are mapped out.
