I wish! I'm a huge Titanic buff.
I even have some coal from the Titanic they dug up off the bottom.

If the program runs again, please let me know. I've been intrigued by the Titanic since 7th grade. I have two framed photos of the Titanic signed by Millvina Dean, coal and lots of small memorabilia. We have a Titanic Exhibit here in Orlando that is pretty good and I got a chance to visit the big exhibit Chicago held back in the mid 90's. It was amazing.

I will keep an eye out for it returning and post a message here or PM you guys.

I watched it , it was quite interesting they traced it's probably origin in Greenland, estimated it began as a snowflake 15000 years ago. Made a slow inexorable crawl to teh sea , broke off in 1909 as the titanic construction was getting going. Floated down past Newfoundland. If the Titanic had not have swevered to miss it but had struck it head on, it would likely have survived with a crumpled bow.

They showed the only photo of it, taken the next day.

Dr. Robert Ballard wrote a great book on the discovery of the Titanic wreck. It's full of great pics and info on Titanic. One of my favorite books.

As the mighty ship grew in stature and hue,
The iceberg grew too.

My loose translation of Convergence of the Twain

PS Since you live on the St Laurent why not read 14 minutes?
