I am sucker when it comes to programs about the Titanic. This program which originally aired on the Smithsonian Channel is not only informative but also very interesting. The CG effects are decent (not the best I’ve seen, but good). The program is presented in (almost) HD with a 1080i resolution, but it still looks clear and sharp. The audio track included is good even if it is only presented in Dolby Digital 5.1, not surround.
The sinking of Titanic, which occured over 100 years ago, still remains one of history’s most mysterious tragedies in living memory. This documentary attempts to reveal reveal and explain some of the missing pieces in our knowledge of the infamous sinking over a century ago. There are tons of programs about the mysteries of the Titanic and this one stands out among them. It proves that there is much more to the story than has been revealed.
This documentary is also interesting because it provides re-enacted interviews from the people involved with that fateful night over 100 years ago. Like I said the CG involved is not groundbreaking or Discovery Channel standard but still looks good and assist this program to entertain. If you are Titanic buff like myself, you will definitely enjoy this unique approach to the Titanic’s Final Mystery…even though I am sure there will many future mysteries.
