  • The tale of the RMS Titanic, the famous passenger liner that claimed to be unsinkable. This claim was proved to be false when it hit an iceberg when crossing the Atlantic Ocean. The drama unfolds as the passengers and crew race against time to get off the sinking vessel and decide who will go into the lifeboats that can only hold half of the ship's population. Those who do not get the privilege of a space on a lifeboat face almost certain death.

  • Everyone thought the RMS Titanic was the safest ship in the world - a leading shipbuilding journal proclaimed it "unsinkable" because of its watertight compartment design. On its first trip from England to New York City, it collided with an iceberg in the middle of the North Atlantic. The much-publicized "unsinkable" watertight compartment design was never designed to cope with such extensive damage, and the "unsinkable" ship starts to go down. Even worse, more than half the 2200+ passengers and crew on board are already doomed, as the Titanic is only carrying lifeboats for about 1200. This is the frightening story of the passengers and crew's struggles to stay alive. Who will escape the Titanic before it goes nearly two miles to the ocean bottom, and survive the panic as well as the 28-degree water?
