Best Documentary on the Subject
17 March 2004 | by zpzjonesSee all my reviews

Even after a decade this is still the best 'documentary' on the disaster. One thing to clear up. The first part was called 'Titanic: Death of A Dream" the second was 'Titanic: The Legend Lives On'. And together they run over 3 hours. Sadly, many of the survivors interviewed in this docu. have now passed on ie: Edith Haisman, Eva Hart, Michel Navratil. This is entertaining as well as educational. Great for the whole family sit down. So for those who may not be pleased with the many different motion picture treatments of the Titanic sinking I'd recommend this as a great alternative. Also check out your local library or the A&E channel's website store for availability.
