Tausend ausverkaufte Auftritte und Millionen zufriedener Kunden von Wien bis Berlin (bei Polen): Seit zwanzig Jahren touren die ehemaligen Titanic-Chefredakteure Martin Sonneborn, Thomas Gsella und Oliver Maria Schmitt über die deutschsprachigen Bühnen und zaubern ein Lächeln auf die Gesichter ihres verhärmten Publikums. Die drei sind längst Legende: Sie wurden vom Papst verklagt, vom Bundespräsidenten und der FIFA; sie wurden ausgebuht, bejubelt und gefeiert. Jetzt holen sie alles raus: ein praller Band, randvoll mit waghalsigen Bestechungsaktionen und unvergessenen Tabubrüchen, hinreißenden Beleidigungen und Glanzstücken furchtloser Satire, erprobten wie neuen Texten und Cartoons über den Schwach- und Irrsinn unserer Zeit. Die drei erzählen von ihren Anfängen in den total verrückten Neunzigern bis zu den großen Welterfolgen und der geplanten Auflösung im Jahr 2040, sie geben Einblick in den Touralltag einer Satire-Supergroup (unscharfe Whirlpoolfotos und unveröffentlichte Minibar-Rechnungen), und der EU-Abgeordnete Sonneborn berichtet aus der Parlamentarierhölle in Brüssel. Ein unverzichtbares Kompendium für Fans des gepflegten Hardcore-Humors - und eine aberwitzige Dokumentation der letzten zwanzig Jahre Deutschland.

K.T. Tomb takes an infamous page from history and recreates it as a sweeping adventure thriller and undersea treasure hunt in Ghosts of the Titanic. First, she takes listeners back to 1912 and the maiden voyage. Forbidden Russian lovers - Stephan Ivanovich, a peasant farmer, and Darya Nikita, an aristocrat with a dowry of diamonds - board the Titanic so they can elope and enjoy a life together in America. The plot fast-forwards to a present-day quest and introduces illegal salvage entrepreneurs posing as documentary filmmakers. Captain Jonathan Martin and his hand-picked crew go to the deep-sea waters of Newfoundland, Canada, to try to recover the diamonds for Darya´s descendants, who hired them. Nick and Franco, the divers, conflict with Lisa, the ship´s medic, who´s in charge of training them to use their new technology. They all have their doubts about the presence of James Harper, a wanted criminal, on this ship. In the past, Darya is trying to escape her aristocratic family and an arranged marriage. In the present, using experimental equipment, when divers Nick and Franco see ghosts on the wreck, an unexpected murder mystery unfurls startling secrets of the voyage before the Titanic hit the iceberg. An ancient curse puts an additional paranormal spin on the dark secrets held by the ghosts of the Titanic. And, once awakened, the ghosts aren´t content to stay at the bottom of the ocean. A small team of adventurers risks their very lives - and possible arrest - for a sack of diamonds. Will they succeed in their treasure hunt, or die trying? 1. Language: English.

Just before midnight on April 14, 1912, the RMS Titanic, the largest ship in the world, hit an iceberg, setting in motion a chain of events that would ultimately make it history´s most famous, and notorious, ship. The Titanic was neither the first nor last big ship to sink, so it´s clear that much of its appeal stems from the nature of ship itself. Indeed, the Titanic stands out not just for its end but for its beginning, specifically the fact that it was the most luxurious passenger ship ever built at the time. In addition to the time it took to come up with the design, the giant ship took a full three years to build, and no effort or cost was spared to outfit the Titanic in the most lavish ways. Given that the Titanic was over 100 feet tall, nearly 900 feet long, and over 90 feet wide, it´s obvious that those who built her and provided all of its famous amenities had plenty of work to do. The massive ship was carrying thousands of passengers and crew members, each with their own experiences on board, and the various amenities offered among the different classes of passengers ensured that life on some decks of the ship was quite different than life on others. Much has been made through the years about the failures of those designing the Titanic to take proper safety precautions, and how these failings led to the disaster and huge loss of life. In fact, the number of lives lost was so great that it can be hard to believe that the death toll might have been higher. Nonetheless, it´s true that many more would have died without the courageous efforts of those on the ships who responded to the Titanic´s distress calls and sailed through the same dangerous conditions that brought down the ´´unsinkable´´ ship itself. Investigating the Sinking of the Titanic chronicles the immediate aftermath of the tragedy and the investigations and changes that followed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Gagnepain.

The original 1912 news accounts of the Titanic disaster include the first-hand accounts of survivors as told to reporters who met the ship bringing them from where they were saved from lifeboats. The surviving crew describes the crucial moments after the ship hit the iceberg. A crewman testifies just three days after the sinking that the ship had a fire in its coal bunkers from the time it set sail. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Barry Abrams.

Although we think we know the story of the Titanic - the famously unsinkable ship that hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Britain to America in April 1912 - little has been written about what happened to the survivors after the tragedy. How did the loss of the ship shape the lives of the people who survived? How did those who were saved feel about those who perished? And how did they remember that terrible night? Shadow of the Titanic will shed new light on this unforgettable event by showing how the disaster continued to shape the lives of those passengers who escaped the sinking ship. 1. Language: English.
