We've made it to April 14th, 1912, and the RMS Titanic is midway through its maiden voyage from England to New York. All is calm, all is normal.
Until - "Iceberg, right ahead!"
But the warning would come too late. The Titanic would scrape across an iceberg far from its destination in America, and within 3 hours, she would be at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. By dawn the morning of April 15th, over 1,500 souls on the Titanic would perish in the frigid sea, with the ship being lost forever to the murky deep.
How did this awful accident happen? Was there anything that could have prevented it? Who was really to blame for the "unsinkable" TItanic meeting its ironic end in April 1912? We trace a timeline from morning to morning, living the last day afloat with unknowing passengers and examining the devastating choices made by the fearful, flustered crew.
