In the Last Mysteries Of The Titanic DVD, Academy Award-winning director James Cameron leads a team of underwater explorers on a series of historic dives to document the remains of the world's most famous shipwreck. Using two, $20-million research subs, four mini-robots, a seafloor-to-satellite data system and a suite of the most advanced cameras and lights, Cameron's team provides real-time images of the ship's interior, including hidden passageways and vast rooms that haven't been seen in over 90 years.

John Burke hosts this rather amazing documentary that features James Cameron at the bottom of the ocean taking live shots of the Titanic ship. Since there have been countless pictures of the ship released after this film as well as other movies about the subject (including one from 2012 with Cameron), you'd think that this here would be out-dated or a little less impressive but that's not the case at all because this thing contains some extremely strong stuff. Cameron, using robots, goes through various parts of the sunken ship and we really get some breathtaking moments along the way. Of course, seeing the outside of the ship is always very haunting and the technology from this time allows for some of the clearest views that you're going to get. Cameron shows us around various parts of the ship and also shows a few places where damage has happened since the last documentary that he shot there in 2001. The real magic of this documentary happens as they enter the ship and locate the Straus Room and notice that now legendary clock still on the fireplace. From here we get to see the Turkish bath house and the amazing footage is without question some of the greatest you're going to see. The details remaining in the tile is just amazing to see and I can't see how anyone wouldn't have their jaws on the floor. At under an hour one wishes that you could have spent more time on the ship but there's no question that's what here is something truly incredible to see.
