Titanic: Birth of a Legend

Image 1 / 10

The Titanic's final hours are well documented, but how did she come into existence? Combining cutting edge computer graphics, dramatic recreations, painstaking research and first hand evidence, ‘Titanic: Birth of a Legend' charts her progress from dream, to drawing board, and ultimately, to disaster. Seeking out the untold stories of the men who designed and built her at the Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast, this fascinating programme investigates the financial pressures, political dramas, tragedy and shame that affected them before and after her launch. Focusing on the lives of a few of the workers who were privileged to be chosen to travel on the Titanic's maiden voyage, and who died when she sank, hear the true forgotten narratives of the men who created the world's most luxurious ship.
