Documentary which explores one crucial piece of the Titanic jigsaw that always escapes attention - the iceberg that caused the catastrophe. Where did this force of nature come from, and what was it doing in the shipping lanes that fateful night? Conceived 15,000 years before the Titanic, its life story is every bit as fascinating.

With the help of ice scientists, the origins of the infamous berg are revealed amid the stunning landscapes of the north - its creation in the heart of the Greenland ice sheet and 4,000-mile journey through Arctic seas towards a terrible date with destiny.
