The Lost Film of the Titanic (with English Subtitles)

Titanic Films by Mark
A documentary featuring original 1912 film footage of the Titanic. This film footage was found in a garden shed in England by a 90 year old lady where it had been lying for 86 years. The film includes shots of the Titanic at Belfast before leaving to start the fateful maiden voyage; the ice flows where she hit the berg; the rescue ship Carpathia returning with survivors; women from New York bringing clothing to the docks to comfort survivors; a 1937 radio interview with Charles Herbert Lightoller, the most senior officer to survive and much, much more. We talk to the woman who found the astonishing film footage and also to Millvina Dean, one of only two survivors still alive in Britain (at the time of the filming) who continues to tell her story of the tragedy. Film produced in 1998.

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.
