Titanic: First Photos

Maria Doyle Kennedy as Muriel Batley and Toby Jones as John Batley.

HERE are the first official photos of ITV1’s Titanic, one of the television drama events of 2012.

To be screened in the UK and around the world – including ABC Network in America – in the spring.

Marking the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the liner in April 1912.

Dec 24 2011 update. The first trailer has just been released:

David Calder as Captain Smith.

Regular readers will know that I spent a week on set in Budapest back in July.

Interviewing 16 members of cast and six other Titanic figures, including writer Julian Fellowes who was also visiting the incredible Hungarian film set at the time.

Later catching up with producer Nigel Stafford-Clark and director Jon Jones in London.

Producing a grand interview transcript total of 85,000 words.

You can read more about that at Titanic Set Visit.

Perdita Weeks as Georgiana and Noah Reid as Harry Widener.

ITV1 will broadcast Titanic in four parts.

The TV drama tells a much wider story than James Cameron’s 1997 movie and sees the ship hitting the iceberg near the end of each of the first three episodes.

Then returning in the next episode to a fresh starting point and another perspective on the story.

Before we discover the fate of all of the characters in the fourth and concluding hour.

Perdita Weeks as Georgiana, Linus Roache as Hugh, Earl of Manton and Geraldine Somerville as Louisa, Countess of Manton.

Antonio Magro as Mario Sandrini

Steven Waddington as Charles Lightholler

Noah Reid as Harry Widener and Perdita Weeks as Georgiana

  1. I mean, they never show us the boat deck in the stills and in the trailer.
    I’m looking forward to watching this mini-series. The idea of showing the disaster from different POVs by ending up the first three episodes with the collision of the ship with the iceberg seen by people from different parts of the ship because when one is on such a huge ship as Titanic one only sees what’s going on in one’s vicinity and one has no clue what it’ all about in general. That’s why the testimonies of survivors often differ a lot which is why it’s a smart move to tell the story seen from different aspects.
    Please, forgive me for my English.

    I think I can stomach another Titanic as long as I don’t have to hear the horrid ‘My Heart Will Go On’ or knowing a Rose and Jack aren’t running around on board the ship with a yell of ‘I’m king of the world’. I’m sure this will not disappoint when it comes to that.🙂
