Without recourse to using fictional characters this impressive docudrama carefully reconstructs how,after hitting the ice berg,the Titanic gradually let in more and more water and,despite the best evidence of Stoker Barrett - who gave evidence at the inquiry and disappeared shortly after - and his colleagues was eventually doomed. It also recounts the testimony of survivors Elizabeth Dowdell,Jack Thayer and chairman Bruce Ismay,as well as showing the fates of Milton Long,Bertha Mayne and the Baxter family. Much of the action is based on the testimony of witnesses at the two inquiries. Written by

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.

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.
