When Titanic set sail in 1912, she was the largest and most technologically advanced man-made moving object in the world, and signalled the high-water mark of the British manufacturing industry. She was built by the world's most skilled and productive workforce, the great industrial communities across the nation that made Britain the global superpower of the age. To reanimate this extraordinary achievement Channel 4 have commissioned a big-budget prime-time series of 5 one-hour programmes currently titled We Built the Titanic. This landmark series will investigate this extraordinary feat of engineering and tell the untold stories of the men and women who built her. This fully illustrated accompanying book will form a lasting testament to these workers and their astonishing creation, tragically doomed to sink on her maiden voyage.

As the original title page proudly proclaims, A Graphic and Thrilling Account of the Sinking of the Greatest Floating Palace Ever Built, Carrying Down to Watery Graves More Than 1,500 Souls; Giving Exciting Escapes from Death and Acts of Heroism Not Equaled in Ancient or Modern times, Told by the Survivors. Indeed, of all the “instant books” published after the sinking of the Titanic, this one best captures the spirit of the times, and of the public reaction to the disaster. Alongside the harrowing accounts of survivors and their testimony before the Senate investigation, there are chapters of newspaper editorials and sermons preached by prominent clergy. Thus we find that even a hundred years ago, opinion columns were despairing of the modern need for speed, and were calling for stern regulation of the new-fangled “Marconigrams” (radio), while churchmen lauded the spirit of “women and children first,” and preached on “How Shall We View God in the Light of Such a Disaster.” The influence of newspapers on public opinion is also shown in the illustrations, which include many editorial cartoons reacting to the disaster. An essential book for studying the historiography of the Titanic.
