The Titanic Awards:Celebrating the Worst of Travel Doug Lansky
The moving testimony of surviving crew and passengers of the Titanic is recreated in this dramatic multicast recording. Merely one day after the Titanic survivors arrived in New York City, a United States Senate committee began investigation into the wreck of the great ´´unsinkable´´ ship. The official transcripts of the investigation include the testimony of J. Bruce Ismay, British Managing Director of the White Star Line, on-duty lookout Frederick Fleet´s admission that the disaster may have been avoided, and passenger Daisy Minahan, who recalls the refusal of an officer in her lifeboat to aid those adrift in the frigid waters. Director/producer James Cameron used this historical record in the making of his film Titanic. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael York, Roscoe Lee Browne.

´´Iceberg, right ahead!´´ Only 160 minutes passed between the time a sailor on lookout duty uttered these chilling words and the moment when the mighty ocean liner Titanic totally disappeared into the cold, dark waters of the North Atlantic. This century-old tragedy, which took more than 1,500 lives, still captivates people in the 21st century. Seventy-three years separate the two major Titanic events - the 1912 sinking of the vessel and the dramatic 1985 discovery of the wreck by Robert Ballard. But additional stories about the victims, survivors, rescuers, reporters, investigators, and many others show the far-reaching effects this tragedy had on society. Award-winning author Stephanie Sammartino McPherson has collected numerous personal accounts of the event, including the knighted man who spent the rest of his life in seclusion because he was accused of dishonorable behavior in a lifeboat, the stewardess who survived two shipwrecks and a midocean collision, and the New York Times executive who sent multiple reporters to meet the rescue ship, thus earning a national reputation for his newspaper. She also links the Titanic tragedy to changes in regulations worldwide. After a Senate inquiry and a British trial attempted to assign blame for the disaster, new laws on ship safety were put in place. A group of nations also banded together to form an ice patrol, eventually leading to the formation of the US Coast Guard. Even the most avid Titanic fans will learn something new as McPherson brings the listener up to date on the politics and intrigue still surrounding the wreck - including what modern science can reveal about what really happened to the ship and who was at fault. Prepare to follow the never-ending story of the Titanic into its second century. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Intuitive.
