Interesting speculation
23 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interesting, well-presented story of what might have actually happened

  • with the known facts that support this theory. Yes, it would be
instructive for the viewer to see the actual documentation instead of admittedly guesswork scenes that reenact private conversations, but not many documentaries present such documents - they'd be pretty dry if they did.

It does tell an engaging story about the odd events leading up to the ill-fated voyage, and present an alternate explanation of the horrible mistakes that history records - if this theory is true, the failure to launch the lifeboats until the last minute makes perfect sense.

For history buffs, it's a good starting point for research. For the mildly curious, it's an entertaining look at what might have been a well-executed cover-up.
