Hello everyone!

I would like to take the opportunity to invite the members of Encyclopaedia Titanica to the launch of Ships that Changed the World, a new BBC series.

Belfast produced one in every eight ships afloat on the planet at one time, and even before the Titanic was launched the shipyards had transformed the White Star Line into the biggest name in transatlantic passenger shipping. At the fringe edge of Europe and the North of Ireland revolutionised maritime history. And on occasion, world history. Harland and Wolff built some of the biggest battleships in the Navy's fleet, and the story proceeds into the age of the supertankers- and the space-age liner the SS Canberra, a ship that won fame from Belfast to Australia to the Falklands. Tim Collins reveals the characters and the personalities that drove the shipyard into the headlines, two world wars and into the centre of a commercial transatlantic shipping race that would lead to triumph and tragedy.

The launch will take place at W5 in the Odyssey, Titanic Quarter, Belfast on Monday 4th February 2008, This will include a special screening, a short talk on the making of the documentary and refreshments.

We would be delighted if some of the members could attend, please RSVP to mark@aboutface.co.uk or seamus@aboutface.co.uk, or alternatively give us a call at the office on 028 9089 4555

Regards,
