One of many documentaries being made for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking. This one features Len Goodman, best known for being a judge on Dancing with the Stars, who shares with us that he worked for Harland and Wolff back in the day, the same company who built the Titanic. Throughout the hour running time we hear various stories about the people on board as well as how their deaths effected survivors and others not on the ship. The documentary starts off with the interesting story of the eight people who died while making the ship and then we hear about various brave people on board the ship. Towards the end of the documentary we also hear about some of the men who survived and how it was demanded that they explain why they were alive while women and children were dead. Overall I found this to be a decent documentary on the subject but I think it's a bit too dry and boring at times to really be considered good. If you one like myself you is obsessed with the topic and watches everything out there about the subject then you'll certainly want to check this one out but I think most others would be best served by checking out one of the better documentaries out there. I thought there were some interesting stories told and especially the ones dealing with those who died while making the ship. The problem is that many of the other stories deal with familiar people that have had the spotlight shined on them in other films so you really don't learn anything new here.
