God himself could not sink this ship.''-Titanic crewman The unsinkable ship sank at 2:20 a.m. on April 14, 1912. Approximately 1,500 people perished with her, a loss that stunned the world. For seven decades the fabled liner lay hidden 13,000 feet below the North Atlantic surface. Various expeditions tried to find her, but they were defeated by wild weather, the extreme depth, and conflicting accounts of the ship's last moments. Finally, in 1985, explorer Bob Ballard and a French-American team located the Titanic. Years of painstaking research paid off as they became the first humans to see the great ship since that awful night to remember in 1912. You can join Ballard on the search-and see what his team saw-through this acclaimed film.

Once thought "unsinkable" - The RMS Titanic now sits, in its watery grave, at the very bottom of the Atlantic Ocean (2.5 miles down).

Join Dr. Robert Ballard and his diligent research team as they triumphantly become the very first to locate, photograph, and explore (through high-tech robotic cameras) this famed wreckage 74 years after its sinking in 1912.

Presented by "National Geographic" - This intriguing, 50-minute historical documentary was originally filmed back in 1986 - But, it still holds some relevance today, 32 years later.

Great series, takes right from the beginning of the first search to the analysis and verification of the accounts of the accident.

I got it and it was a history movie, if you want that?

Very informative and a good visual underwater expedition.

Outstanding pair of documentaries on the shipwreck, the first dating back to 1986 and the Ballard expeditions of the mid-eighties, and the second a fresh look at the wreck, the building of the ship, and what went wrong. Recommended for anyone with an interest in the subject.

What secrets? Maybe these were secrets before the Titanic movie but these are not secrets now.
