Editorial Reviews

April 15th 2012 marks the 100-year anniversary of the sinking of RMS TITANIC, with the loss of 1,517 lives. The 'unsinkable' Floating Palace set sail from Southampton on April 10, 1912 on her maiden voyage to New York. An iceberg ended this monumental journey 5 days later. Only 705 of the 2,223 passengers and crew survived. Presented by actor Mark Lindsay Chapman, who played Chief Officer Henry Wilde in James Cameron s Titanic, this fascinating program takes you 'deeper' into the legend of Titanic and separates the facts from the myths and the fantasy. An exclusive look at the Sea City Museum Titanic Exhibit in Southampton, and interviews from survivors as well as the cast of the blockbuster film, TITANIC, including Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, give us a new perspective on this incredible 100-year old story.

Format:DVD
When the "credentials" for this hour long film - which looks like it was made for the Fox Channel (Not Fox NEWS channel), but probably wasn't - is the fact that it's narrated by the ACTOR who played the role of the Chief Officer in the mega-hit film "Titanic", and Leo DiCaprio and Director James Cameron are featured on the package, you should know you are not in for an honest film abut the ship. But, I went ahead anyway and watched it.

The score which underlies the narration is pure 70s/80s power pop with a constantly beating drum. Not only does the score and the drumming drown out the narrationm, but it is totally out of place. Yes, there is commentary from the National Maritime Museum (in Halifax Canada I'm assuming) but everything else is made up of historical still photos and lots of scenes from the Hollywood motion picture. I'd tell you more, but I'll save my words - and your time. This is truly a DVD that is jumping on the timing of the Centenary of the sinking of the Titanic,; nothing more. Don't expect PBS quality here.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doco that should hit an iceberg May 27, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Titanic 100 years on is a disgrace.
I have well over 35 docos about the Titanic and this is by far the most miserable excuse for a documentary about the disaster it has been my misfortune to witness.
Where to start?...the background music styles range from 60's beat instrumentals to 90's dance and 30's jazz....close.....but.....
The editing...........apparently that's what it is, is sloppy, rough and vainly done to look cutting edge. It is an epic fail.
There are various ships related to the Titanic story that are mentioned. Amerika, Baltic, California, Titanic itself.....the picture used you may ask???....The Carpathia................I could go on, but I think you get the drift.
Awful.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just Awful! August 3, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The loud music that was played continually throughout this documentary ruined any chance I may have had to enjoy it. Information seemed inaccurate. But since I couldn't hear most of the dialogue who knows. I loved Cameron's movie and I am interested in Titanic's history but this is the worst documentary I have ever seen!

1.0 out of 5 stars Fluff: Inappropriate for Children May 20, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I've been looking for a video to detail the Titanic story as a supplement to a social studies and reading assignment in my third grade classroom. I think my students deserve to see the actual, available images and to hear the story from historians. This is not the right video.

Too many sensationalized clips are included in this video. It does not present the story chronologically. Instead, the emphasis is on the most popular facts and stories. And worst of all for third grade, it shows a crew member shooting himself in the head from a scene in the popular movie. --Totally extraneous and unfounded information. And it relegates this video to the "can't show in class" pile.

It's too bad someone doesn't put out a kids' video on this topic. Kids are really interested in disasters and tragedies in history. But we have to remember that some content needs to be edited. I've looked at other documentaries with little luck. National Geographic documentaries are also produced with an adult audience in mind so the vocabulary is difficult for kids and the content is labored.

I call this documentary "fluff" because it includes more Hollywood scenes than historical images. Some of the images/film clips are not even the Titanic, but other ships from within the ten years before and after the disaster. The film makers do not take care to distinguish fact from near-fact.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a well done documentary June 23, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The film clips used at times have no relationship to the dialog. There are many misrepresentations of facts as Iknw them from other sources.

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved the footage September 29, 2014

I loved the footage, the interviews, and Mark Lindsay Chapman is a wonderful narrator. The music is really bad. Too many songs that were truly out of place and did not fit the mood of the film.

1.0 out of 5 stars We thought we were renting the movie - wrong
We thought we were renting the actual move "Titanic." This was more background info.
Total waste of money for us - just beware.

I liked the movie, was very informative and it was perfect to have Kate Winset in the movie. Lovely actress. Leo should have been in it also.

This documentary provides insight into the true story behind the Titanic. It's not the dramatized version everyone knows from the movie. I really enjoyed it! Read more
