Lavish, big budget dramatic account of the ill fated supership and supposedly unsinkable Titanic.
It’s April 1912 and people of all classes are going aboard the White Star Line’s amazing new ship for the trip of a lifetime as it travels to America.
Some are going purely for the adventure, some are going to try and start a new life. There are aristocrats, celebrities and people who have sold everything for a ticket. As friendships are formed and sometimes broken what the passengers and crew don’t know is that their lives are about to change forever.
When the ship collides with a giant iceberg the “unsinkable” vessel starts to sink and everyone’s lives are at risk.
Made with great attention to detail and with Downton Abbey’s creator Julian Fellowes typical eye for wonderfully authentic dialogue Titanic is superb British period drama. Fabulously cast too. The final episode airs on 15 April which just happens to be the 100th anniversary of the disaster.
