An animation made with After the Flood for the BBC, marking the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. Titanic is perhaps the most iconic ship in history, its tragic story known the world over. The most celebrated ocean liner of its time even before it first sailed, Titanic was an incredible feat of engineering and ambition. Its maiden voyage ended in tragedy when it struck an iceberg and sank, killing more than 1,500 passengers and crew. From its construction in Belfast, through its dramatic sinking to the discovery of the wreck, it is a story that continues to capture the public imagination. It focuses on the ship's route, structure, and survivor data as an alternative to the traditional picture of the disaster.
