"This is a documentary “short” covering the fateful tragedy of the sinking of the Titanic and the interest this event still holds for many people. It is a century since the Titanic sunk with the loss of so many lives and despite it being a terrible occasion and still on the maiden voyage…the technological mastery of the Titanic build is still marvelled at today.

What makes this story captivate us even 100 years on? the centenary of the disaster sees many events to “Celebrate” this tale.

Daniel Mendelson discusses the “man verses nature” conflict which this depicts

Limits of technology are challenged and always of interest these days and of course the Titanic was indeed the ultimate tecchnological wonder of its day.

Class segregation is explored with the realisation that dependent upon your “Class” your chance of survival was higher or lower and the story surrounding this is discussed.

The story seems to have it all but the drama unfolds to show that even the most beautiful and technologically advanced of its time can disintegrate in front of our eyes.

If you happen to be visiting my home town of Belfast N Ireland where the Titanic was built, you should perhaps consider the chance to visit the Titanic Quarter and the visitor centre there… you can read more about it at http://www.titanicbelfast.com/Home.aspx"
