• Short Summary

    Copy of a 1970 television documentary made about the 1912 Titanic disaster.

  • Description

    Interviews with survivors of the Titanic disaster accompany drawings, paintings and photographs of the ship.

    There is a short sequence at the beginning of this documentary of archive footage suggested to be of the Titanic. The very first shot and possibly the second shot are of the Titanic. The other shots feature other ships. For the best genuine footage of the Titanic see tape PM3468 - film ID 3468.07.

    The interviews with survivors are very nice. One woman talks of how people played snowballs when the ship hit the iceberg and how someone had observed that the iceberg was a "whopper"! Two survivors talk about how they got off the ship. Edith Russell holds a toy pig which she had with her on the journey. Arthur Lewis who was a bedroom steward on the Titanic speaks of his time in the lifeboat.

    Does anyone know the name of the lady interviewing in this documentary, she looks familiar?

    I am wondering who the woman is doing the interview and where is she now? I must say, she is truly a beauty. I hope she has lived a good life and that fortune has been kind.

    One of the most disastrous incidents in history is recognized by Titanic's name. The survivors must have taken the lesson for life.

    One of the survivors with her lucky pig is Edith Russell.
