Titanic

Today it is 99 years of the accident and it is still alive in people’s mind.

RMS Titanic was a passenger liner that struck an iceberg on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England, to New York City, and sank on 15 April 1912. She struck the iceberg four days into the crossing, at 23:40 on 14 April 1912, and sank at 2:20 the following morning, resulting in the deaths of 1,517 people in one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history.

Between the years 1912 to 2010, 21 films have been produced about the ship. And that’s not including the plethora of documentaries and television features. According to www.locatetv.com it has been announced that ITV1 will be spawning a mini-series surrounding RMS Titanic. Linus Roache and Celia Imrie will be included in the epic series, due to begin filming in Hungary this month. Europe’s biggest indoor water tank will be used to film the period drama and not only the UK will be able to view it, but the US and Australia will too!
