Titanic series screened on 100th anniversary of voyage

Network chiefs at ITV announced earlier this year (11) they are planning to mark the centenary of the luxury liner’s fateful maiden journey by filming a new version of the story, starring Celia Imrie and Linus Roache.

Now it’s emerged the show will be broadcast to coincide with the dates of the voyage, which began on 10 April, 1912, when the doomed ship set sail from Southampton, England and ended when she sank in the Atlantic in the early hours of 15 April.

Imrie tells U.K. TV show This Morning, “I think, rather cleverly, they are going to broadcast on the (dates of the) actual journey in April – the take-off (sic) and then the length of time it went on, and then the disaster. It’s four episodes.

“It’s fascinating because everybody has got an interest in it. It’s like a sort of ghastly fairytale really, because there is such glamour involved.”
