Nearly 100 years after the Sinking of the Luxury Liner Titanic we find ourselves still fascinated with the event.
In 1996, I have the honour of meeting and spending time with Edith Haisman Brown and Michel Navratil, two survivors of the Titanic tragedy; since that time I have held a fascination about the event.
In order to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the sinking, Rhapsody Tours has produced a series of short videos to explore the fascination, the myths, the people on board, the movies, the aftermath and much more.
These video are full of facts and stories that are interesting, surprising and at times will tuck at your heart strings.
