National Geographic remembers the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic with a special collection including the original classic Secrets of the Titanic and the new special Save the Titanic with Bob Ballard.
After years of painstaking research, Dr. Robert Ballard finally located the ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic, nearly two-and-one-half miles down in the icy Atlantic. Secrets of the Titanic reveals the spectacular original images and on-location footage captured of the legendary shipwreck.
In Save the Titanic with Bob Ballard, Dr. Ballard revisits the ship in an entirely different wayfrom the perspective of those who set sail on her some 100 years ago. Traveling to the shipyards of Northern Ireland to retrace the path of the doomed ship from her very incarnation, Ballard is driven by one personal question throughout his journeywill the Titanic survive another 100 years? As evidence mounts that the ship is under siege by natural forces, careless visitors and even rogue salvage operators, the man who found her teams up with the families of victims and survivors to protect the legacy of history's most famous ship.
Bonus Programs: Last Hours of the Titanic, Behind the Scenes, Q&A with Dr. Ballard.
Comments about Secrets of the Titanic 100 Year Anniversary DVD Collection:
I have had an interest in the Titanic disaster since childhood after reading "A Night to Remember".. Later in life I learned that I am distantly related to the Thayer family that sailed on the ship.. As a result I have attempted to learn about the ship and the stories of the sinking to the best of my ability.. This DVD added to that learning process..
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
