Titanic Films by Mark
This documentary talks with the descendants of families affected by the sinking of the Titanic in 1912. It includes stories from the builders, the passengers, the rescuers and even some who ignored the call for help.

The Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on April 15, 1912, after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New Your City. There were 1,514 people that drowned in one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history. Her passengers included some of the wealthiest people in the world, as well as over one thousand immigrants from Great Britain, Ireland, Scandinavia, and elsewhere seeking a new life in America. At 2 o'clock in the morning on April 15, 1912, "The Unsinkable Titanic" sunk and today the story lives on.
