This is, by far, the best documentary of the Titanic disaster I have ever seen! I watch it regularly, and cannot emphasize enough the care and time put into the making of this feature. It has rare footage, documents, pictures, and testimonials that cannot be found in any one collection. I am an amateur Titanic historian, and this is the one I show to anyone I can! The remarkable thing about this particular feature is that it not only has candid and informative interviews; they are with historians, survivors, family members, and voice overs of actual passenger letters and memoirs. The accounts bring into sharp focus the impact and long range effect the disaster had on the world, and it always reminds me of what was lost and changed since the great ship went down. It explains why it built, what the world was like at that time, and why it was such a tragedy. It makes one feel like they were on the ship itself, and shows the wreck and artifacts salvaged. I originally owned this on VHS, and wore out my copy twice. Thank goodness, it is on DVD! I consider it the most vital of my Titanic collection; and everyone I have shown it to has been amazed. There is a part that shows a map of the deaths in one area; the loss is staggering. Some of the testimony still brings tears to my eyes.I believe this won an Emmy for best documentary for this year, and David Callum narrated this feature expertly. this is a much simpler and more powerful way to understand the tragedy of the ship's demise, and the visuals are creative and moving. I could not recommend this more strongly!
Having been a serious TITANIC student for over 45 years, I collect any documentary and books (which are deemed good enough) on the subject.
This title is a great addition for anyone who is interested in the Titanic.
Someone with a casual interest to a serious TIITANIC student will find plenty
of documentation and interviews with serious TITANIC students, including Walter Lord who wroter "A Night To Remember."
This set was originally issued on A & E on a 2-disc set. It was re-issued as part of the History Channel Collection and includes a third disc with more material.
I have read all the material a serious Titanic student looks for, including books by the survivors, the 1911 issue of "Shipbuilder" the American and British inquiries of 1912 and various articles and documentries, not to mention boxloads of issues of "The Titanic Commutator" by the Titanic Historical Society which I have had over the years.
It is with this extensive research that I can say that I highly recommend "TITANIC - THE COMPLETE STORY" distributed by the History Channel, although I do not know if the title is still available. Search for it on E-Bay!
An excellent production - and the documentary sticks to the subject - more than I can say for the 1997 film "Titanic."
A MUST for "Titanic" collectors and researchers!

This program was originally shown on the history channel. When it came out on dvd I knew right away I was going to get it. I bought this product because of my lifelong interest in the Titanic. It has a lot of factual information as well as rarely seen video footage of the ship. This program is the best documentary I've ever seen about the Titanic and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Titanic The Complete Story is the best documentary I have seen about the disaster. The movie has survivor testimony about the events of April 14, 1912. They have experts who give a great historical viewpoint. Along with music from the time and brillant illustrations. For anyone who wants to learn about the greatest maritime disaster buy this DVD.
This is a truly brilliant documentary on one of my favorite subjects the Titanic. This three part documentary is roughly six hours long and covers the creation, tragic sinking, aftermath and the cultural impact that the RMS Titanic has had on history. I highly recommend for any who has ever been interested in this subject. It's truly fascinating and you will be amazed at how fast time goes by while watching it.
