Titanic Memories - The Aftermath

Duration: 04:48

At 23.40 on Sunday 14 April 1912 RMS Titanic struck an iceberg; the ship was on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. Two hours and 40 minutes later she sank deep into the freezing Atlantic waters. Less than a third of the people on board were rescued.
Four survivors recall the horror of the ship’s final moments, her dramatic descent and the screams of the drowning: Eva Hart (a second class passenger who was seven at the time of the tragedy) speaks in 1987; Frank Prentice (a member of the victualing crew) speaks in 1984; Edith Russell (a first class passenger) speaks in 1970 and Joseph Boxhall (Titanic’s 4th Officer) speaks in 1984.
