Summary
Armed with sophisticated equipment, Dr. Robert Ballard of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and his team of researchers become the first humans to see and photograph the Titanic since its sinking more than 70 years ago. Images from Ballard's dives are crisp and clear, as if the viewer were visiting the wreck in a glass-bottomed boat. A 20-minute feature, "Last hours of the Titanic" provides the best bonus; Ballard talks about the difficulties of locating the wreck, the mechanics of the ship's demise, and how he and his team pieced together a composite picture of the sunken ocean liner
