Synopsis

On the 110th anniversary of the shipwreck, insider and specialist Paul-Henri Nargeolet brings the story of the ship to life.

1st September 1985. The Titanic, which disappeared into the Atlantic ocean on the 15th April 1912 has been discovered lying at a depth of 3,821 meters.

Requested by the French Institute for Sea Exploration (IFREMER), Paul Henri Nargolet, Marine Commander, becomes Director of Submarine Research for future expeditions into the wreck. From 1987 to 2021, he explores the secrets of the Titanic over hundreds of hours of diving. More than 5,500 objects will be brought to the surface under his supervision: bits of the shell, jewellery, bottles of champagne, fabrics, suitcases – each and every one a fascinating insight into the glory days of the vessel and it’s tragic destiny.

Through this incredible narrative of his expeditions, Paul Henri Nargeolet lets us relive the history of the Titanic and that of its passengers and crew, offering a unique point of view into this maritime catastrophe which has become the stuff of legend.
