Titanic: Interviews

Production shot of Titanic at Harland and Wolff in Belfast.

“THE truth will surface.”

Titanic is about to set sail on screen in 86 countries.

ITV1 viewers in the UK will see the new £11m production as a four part serial, starting at 9pm on Sunday March 25.

With the final episode broadcast on Sunday April 15 – exactly 100 years to the day that Titanic sank in the Atlantic.

It begins in Canada on Wed March 21.

While ABC viewers in America have to wait until April 14.
