Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
When the RMS Titanic descended to its watery North Atlantic grave on that tragic and fateful day of April 15, 1912, many thought the story of the supposedly "unsinkable" ship had come to end. Though many had searched the ocean floor to find trace of the ill-fated liner's wreckage to no avail in the decades that followed, it wasn't until 1985 that Dr. Robert Ballard brought one of history's most affecting tragedies back into the light of day. Now join Dr. Ballard as he details his incredible journey 12,000 feet beneath the ocean and how a mission to explore a pair of lost Cold War submarines eventually led to one of the most significant discoveries in maritime history. In addition to discovering the details of Dr. Ballard's once top-secret mission that resulted in the discovery of the Titanic, viewers will also follow Dr. Ballard back to the site as he documents the subsequent effects that explorers have had on the wreckage and partners with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to make his dream of creating a Titanic museum a reality.
