Ttitanic's Final Moments: Missing Pieces
This is an interesting documentary about the sinking of the Titanic, that is contrary to past explanations on how the ship sank in 1912, and whether or not the ship split in two or not during the sinking. Through modern technology, interviews, colorful illustrations, and underwater scenes of the wreckage, the documentary scientifically gives the view another side of the story of the sinking of the Titanic that has not been discussed before.

One More Piece
The Titanic has always fascinated me, since childhood when I heard my parents talk about her. As I have acquired just about every program about her, this seemed to be another good one to add to the collection, especially since it has the History Channel behind it.<br><br>The history of Titanic and her sinking is covered, interspersed with discussions about this latest mission to try and find missing pieces of the hull. Several years earlier on a dive, one man thought he found "ribbons of steel" which would indicate that Titanic suffered more damage than the scraping of the sides against the iceberg. Unfortunately, he brought no photographic proof up from the depths, and in this attempt, the team will try to find and document the pieces for more in-depth analysis by a number of experts.<br><br>The program covers the research vessel, the Russian ship Keldysh, its submersibles, and the logistics of diving to such formidable depths. That is a nice overview for anyone not familiar with what an enormous undertaking it is to dive to Titanic.<br><br>My biggest complaint about this program is the same as every other one done - there is never enough footage of the ship itself. I'm quite certain there must be miles and miles and miles of film that has been taken of the ship, but we see relatively little in final productions. One thing that is very evident, however, is the deterioration of the ship which seems to be accelerating, and sadly, as one of the team puts it, "someday she will be a big rust stain on the bottom of the ocean."<br><br>The dive teams' number of dives is decreased as a serious storm moves toward the dive site, putting more pressure on them in their efforts to succeed. Better than Hollywood. The team is tracked as it tries to locate the pieces, which is no easy task two and a half miles down. The ocean floor is vast, pitch black, and without roadmaps. The Mir submersibles have cameras inside them, which gives you an idea of how cramped three people are inside these technological marvels.<br><br>For anyone fascinated by the Titanic and her tragic demise, I think this program is a nice addition to your library.Read full review

This video tells a bit of new information on why the Titanic did sink.
I have been interested in the Titanic for many years. I have most of the videos on the ship, but most are still VHS and I want to switch to disc. This video is one of the latest on the disaster and quite informative.

Great movie if you are a Titanic buff as we are. HIGHLY recommend. Great interviews and pictures. The pictures and information, some I had seen, of course, but then there were some we hadn't seen. If you are interested in the Titanic, you must see this, its from the History Channel so its information is correct.

Footage never seen before!
Even after 94 years the Titanic is still the ship of Dreams. This movie was a fascinating find. There are images of the Titanic that are on this footage that have never been seen before, such as a huge chunk of the bottom of the ship. They also go in to detail, finally, to disprove or prove the theories behind the sinking! I give this movie 5 stars!
