Editorial Reviews

Over the last 100 years, there have been countless stories about the Titanic s last hours, but little has been said about the shipbuilders and engineers who worked tirelessly below as the water rushed in and made the ultimate sacrifice. SAVING THE TITANIC takes us below deck to the engine and boiler rooms where these men worked, following them from the ship s departure from Southampton through to its eventual sinking.

I also watched this PBS program and I have to say it brought me to tears, just seeing those brave Irsihmen working in the bowels of the ship, keeping the lights on for the passengers to board the lifeboats. Without their bravery and sacrifice, they would have been more casualties. This is truly a sad story and not one known by all who have an interest in the disaster. The acting is first rate and it will brings it home, when you see the actual photos of those brave souls at the end of the program. I cannot wait to purchase the dvd.

The televised version is less than 60 minutes while this version is described as 90 minutes. I am anxious to see if this version is presented as an outright drama or as the narrated, dramatised documentary shown on PBS. Either way, it will be good.

UPDATE: I have seen it now and it is better than the version shown on PBS. It is interesting to see the parts that were cut out. I don't known why they edited it for PBS unless they thought the U.S. viewers would not understand part of it. If you like movies about the Titanic you need to get this one; it shows a side of the events that you don't normally see.

Although some things in the movie aren't exactly true, even though it states it is, it is a better than average Titanic movie. Of course, nothing even comes close to, A Night to Remember, but it does tell about those who were working to in the boiler rooms who didn't get all the praise they deserved. The best thing about the block buster movie, Titanic, is that it started another round of new books and movies about the ship. Now,I am happy to see more new books due to the one hundred anniversary. Keep them coming.

This is a very well acted documentary that receates what life was like for those Titanic crew members who worked down in the boiler and engine rooms of the famous ship. The film is told through the memories of Lead Fireman, Fredrick Barret. Barret was one of the few men who remained onboard after the collision, toiling away in the boiler rooms of the ship; and he ended up being the only man to survive the sinking who had actually witnessed the impact from inside the vessel. He personally saw the hull rupture, giving way to sea water flooding into the ship's first five compartments, and thereby assuring her loss. The film tells his story in retrospect, while he's seated(presumably in England)before a group of Board members of the White Star Line. They are looking for stories of heroism that they hope will counter all the negative news stories about the ship's sinking, that are so well known today. The film traces Barrets actions from the time the ship leaves Belfast after her trials, it then covers the preparations for the start of the maiden voyage while docked at Southampton, and finally the start of the first voyage itself. The viewer is introduced to a number of additional crew members, mainly Engineers, and Electricians, who, as Officers on the Titanic, were responcible for overseeing the daily mechanical operations of the new ship.

But the film also tells its' story in relation to what it was actually like for people living at that time. Along with their kits and clothing, these crew members brought additional, personal baggage onboard that really impacted how this group of men got along with each other. Things like the ridged class structure, the religious wars taking place, particularly in Ireland where the ship was built, and finally, the rank structure of the crew itself.

Format: DVD
Superb! This is a true story of the century about the human spirit, with first class acting, incredible photography, effective dialogue as well as non-verbal messages throughout. The sacrifice of the workers in the boiler room whose super-efforts delayed the sinking of the ship and thereby gave time to save more lives is brought to light. These heroes did not receive the credit they deserved. Their courage to do the extremely hard work under the most difficult conditions should have been saluted to the full extent.

There is a touch of information on the workers' personal lives, dilemmas and heartbreaks, pains of separation from their families, serious conflicts based on religion, general depression caused by the boiler room job ("Do you remember the Sun?"), and unfair treatments by bosses including over-work and pay-cuts, all of which give strong clues on the social, religious, and economic history of their times.

It is the true story of human decency, going way beyond the call of duty, total sacrifice, standing up for principles, bravery, and jobs well-done strictly from the sense of duty and compassion-being human at its best.

The heroics of the crew on of deck the RMS Titanic on the night of 14-15 April 1912, is well known but below deck little, if anything, has been written. Having seen this dvd, I now know of a whole new level of courage. Facing certain death the seinor engineering staff stayed at their posts untill there was nothing left to do. Because of their efforts many more lived to see the dawn of a new day. As we remember those who died that night, let these brave souls rank amoung the very few who place the life of others before their own. God speed these heroes of the high seas.
