Recently watched this episode of 'You Are There' from the 1950's. I like this unique perspective of the Titanic story. What are your thoughts of it?

First shown on 22 May 1955. It's actually fairly accurate and is probably based on the US inquiry. Some parts are quite amusing, such as 'Lord' Ismay on the bridge. The presenter is the famous Walter Cronkite "the most trusted man in America". The show is part of a long series that began on radio and went on to TV.

This was a re-edited version of the original broadcast for schoolroom use. That's the reason why it's the *only* upload of "You Are There" that hasn't been taken down by YT on copyright grounds because it's not the pure original broadcast version.

Playing Frederick Hoyt is Hayden Roarke who was best remembered for his role on "I Dream Of Jeannie" as Dr. Bellows.
