Misleading in some ways. The repeated suggestions that everything about the Titanic was new and unique ignore the existence of the Olympic, which was in nearly all respects built to the same design and had been in service for a year. We are told there was a design flaw, but this was not true by the shipbuilding standards of the time. And the commentary states as a fact that Andrews felt that the disaster was his fault. In reality of course we have no idea what he was thinking, but I've little doubt that he knew the sinking was due to errors of judgement which were not his own.
