Titanic at 100: Mystery Solved, airing on History on April 15, will offer new information found through a recent expedition to answer how the Titanic broke apart and sank.
Produced by Lone Wolf Documentary Group, the special sees a team of scientists, engineers, archaeologists and imaging experts banding together on an expedition to find answers to how the “unsinkable” ship went down in the North Atlantic on April 15, 1912.
History joined the world’s top underwater experts in a 2010 expedition to the wreck site which provided unprecedented new findings and the first comprehensive map of the the ocean floor where the ship came to rest.
The network says Titanic at 100: Mystery Solved will also reveal a complete picture of the breakup and sinking of the ship by use of a virtual hangar. Computer simulations will enact the sinking in reverse, bringing pieces of the Titanic’s wreckage back to the surface and reassembling the ship in the virtual hangar.
Executive producers are Kirk Wolfinger, RMS Titanic, Inc., and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution; and for History, Carl H. Lindahl. Peacock Productions/NBC News are co-exec producers.
