    Titanic Belfast: Birthplace of a Legend The tragic end of Titanic is well known. What is less well known is the story of her origin, how and why she was built and by whom. This film, releasing in time for the 100th anniversary of the disaster, tells us many new details of the Titanic. It traces Belfast's emergence as a shipbuilding powerhouse in the early 19th Century, primarily in the form of the Harland and Wolff shipyard. In 1907 the White Star Line awarded Harland and Wolff a contract to construct 3 superb steam liners that would hit new heights in terms of passenger safety, comfort, style and sheer size. The first 2 to be commissioned were the sister ships Olympic and the Titanic, with the construction of the Titanic beginning in March of 1909.
    Descendants of shipworkers and historians explore the role the building of the massive Titanic played in the lives of the inhabitants of Belfast. Sadly, the Titanic's ending is well known and tragic - on her first voyage, shortly before midnight on the night of April 14th, 1912 the ship struck an iceberg in the freezing North Atlantic.
    In less than 3 hours she sank to the ocean floor, with the loss of over 1500 lives. 36 of those lost lives belonged to men and women of Belfast. Seldom-seen images of Titanic during her construction and preparation for launch are included in this new look at the doomed ship. Interviews were filmed at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum. The film also looks at the emerging Titanic museum in Belfast.
