[edit] Information

In the 19th century, workers transformed the coast in Belfast to create the world's biggest shipyard, later the site of Titanic's construction. This luxury liner was unparalleled in size and scope and required a massive infrastructure to complete the job. Take a look as historians uncover the process behind building Titanic. When the RMS Titanic sank on the 15th of April 1912 claiming over 1500 lives she took with her the pride and dreams of a city. What took just 180 minutes to disappear had taken the people of Belfast millions of man hours to build. The construction of the 'unsinkable' Titanic needed an army of workers and the resources of a purpose-built town complete with an array of specially built docks and facilities to construct it. This is the forgotten story of Belfast's 'Titanic Town'. Before construction could begin they had to carve a vast new dock from the cities marshland, they shaped acres of steel to form a hull they believed to be unsinkable, they had installed two engines which were both two stories tall to power the Titanic across the atlantic ocean and their finest craftsman had toiled to create an interior that rivalled the grandest hotels in Europe. Today the place in which the great ship was launched is derelict and deserted but this film sets out build a picture of how it looked in its heyday, home to an army of dedicated workers, the largest shipyard in the world. Finding traces of the massive structures which once stood there and the vast recourse which were deployed, discovering the harsh conditions the men lived and worked in, revealing evidence of skill, determination and extraordinary ambition. It all ended in catastrophe but what happened here was remarkable, this film sets out to reconstruct the world of the men who set out to build the biggest ship in history.
