    Titanic - The Shocking Truth

    I do like a good conspiracy theory, and this one is pretty impressive. The documentary is set in a period drawing room and plays lots of dramatic music to give it some phony credence. The presenter also has a spooky face, and looks very serious.

    However, the arguments and historical 'facts' are extremely interesting and nicely presented with graphics and mini-dramas. I thoughly recommend a look. And in case you were wondering - it was Titanic's identical sister ship, the Olympic, which hit the iceberg and sank, not the Titanic.

    Unfortunately no. But on the upside, there is no Celine 'my heart will go on' Dion soundtrack.

    Get a grip. We all know the Titanic was deliberately sunk by a fledgling movie studio for an ambitious long term project.

    I watched it. Absolute drivel of course but relatively entertaining.

    Yeah cool. Must admit I found the history of White Star and the operation of the Irish Dockyards facinating.

    Here is a facinating and enjoyable documentary by the Smithsonian on the sinking of the Titanic, why it failed to miss the iceberg, and the role of 'The Californian' in the general debacle afterwards.
