Trivia

This episode was also shown as a standalone programme in the UK, with the title "Inside the Titanic" and without the use of the series title "Curiosity" or the contribution of Bill Paxton as Host. See more »

Goofs

In the US version, the narrator states, "Every 10 cubic feet of 'berg is a ton of solid ice". The actual density of ice is about a quarter of that. In the UK version he says "Every cubic metre of 'berg is a ton of solid ice", which is a lot closer to the actual density of ice 0.92 g/cm³, equivalent to 0.92 tonnes, 0.90 UK tons or 1.01 US tons per cubic metre.

Quotes

[first lines]
Bill Paxton: Behind the romance, the history, and the tragedy, lies one of the great unanswered questions of the last 100 years: Exactly how does a ship, that's thought to be unsinkable, drown on her maiden voyage?

Agree with the first poster, this an underrated, but top notch film. Obviously a low budget compared to the more well known films, but I subconsciously never questioned a single shot for fake details or CGI, the boat and effects are superbly done.

I thought Lawrence Naismith was the definitive Captain Smith, but Christian Rhodska may have taken over that mantle now? and its hard to believe he once played a carefree,greasy biker in the series Follyfoot, and he was just part of a great cast of relative unknowns. We all know how its going to end, but the editing and acting keep the tension and air of impending doom going from start to finish, and something you could easily watch again and again.
