Titanic: Anatomie D'Un Géant (Inédit RMC Découverte Canal 24) is a new French television documentary covering the key details of Titanic's design and construction. This production company has previously covered Titanic related subjects, without the sensationalism seen all too often elsewhere. I am advised by Jean-Philippe Marre that it will debut in France on 1 April 2022 at 21:05.

It is a French production and is entirely in French, however it may become available with English subtitles.

I know Jean-Philippe was interviewed on camera, as were Rudi Newman and I last September 2021 (among others). I'm also aware they consulted with Bruce Beveridge and, I think, Don Lynch. As always, it's hard to know what will make the final cut!

This sounds really promising. They've certainly got the right people involved. ;)

Surely has to be better than that "10 Mistakes that Sank the Titanic" rubbish that was shown in the UK not long ago.

Mark,

I was just informed by Steve Hall that this documentary came out. I found it on Youtube and activated the English subtitles. It's good to see you have not aged as usual, looking the same as I saw you last. Wish I could say the same. Good also to see Don and Father Pironne. I saw that they found great film footage of Olympic. I'm just watching it now on Youtube - not finished yet.

Thanks Bruce!

I never watch myself but I'm told it was a good programme. I heard good feedback about you also.

I do have some quibbles with it such as the claims about J.P. Morgan financing Titanic or (of course) the four-bladed centre propeller, however it wasn't one of those programmes where the reality was sensationalised too much.
