Titanic's discoverer Robert Ballard returns to Belfast


The man who found the wreck of the RMS Titanic has visited Belfast as part of a documentary about the world's most famous ship.

Dr Robert Ballard discovered the wreck just over 25 years ago off the coast of Canada.

He visited Belfast's new Titanic project as well as the drawing office where the ship began its life.

BBC Newsline's science correspondent Mike McKimm caught up with the explorer as he met a new generation of Titanic enthusiasts.
