That Sinking Feeling: Many Titanic Specials Set For April
Coming onboard in April: a whole host of TV specials commemorating the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, April 15, 1912. They will appear on the channels you would think, from NatGeo to the History Channel to PBS. There's also ABC's "Titanic," a miniseries by "Downton Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes.
This post by Diane Werts also includes a host of reasons for the continuing appeal of the Titanic story -- from its class conflict theme to how pop culture like film keeps exploring it for new generations.
