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.
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.Read more ›
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.
