Never seen the light of day...
24 October 2007 | by mattn-9See all my reviews

This docudrama was never shown in the UK due to complaints about its content from some of the victims families to the films producers in the UK, ITV. As such its still not been seen one year later, and may never reach the screens in the UK, even though it was a well made £2 million budget film...which is a big budget for a TV docudrama!! The film includes some very well made if perhaps not very tasteful, CGI scenes of the boat sinking which bear a remarkable resemblance to the famous Titanic movie scenes.

As far as I'm aware it was released in some foreign markets in DVD format, (Japan for example) so if anyone is interested you may be able to import it.
