Words of the Titanic Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Wed, Jan 8, 2014 -- 11:00 PM

The tragic sinking of the supposedly "unsinkable" luxury cruise ship Titanic on April 15, 1912, is an event that has continued to live on in the public consciousness. The discovery of the wreck on the ocean floor in 1985 as well as James Cameron's 1997 blockbuster film have reignited public interest and fascination with the landmark disaster in recent times. The upcoming centennial of the disaster is understandably an anniversary that is of keen significance.
This program documents the fateful voyage in a creative and respectful manner. Descendants of the Titanic's passengers (grand children, grand nieces, etc.) offer some family recollections. However, much of the story is brought to life by actors delivering readings from original letters, diaries and memoirs of the momentous event. Archival materials and excerpts from Hollywood depictions provide additional insights and interpretations.
