The Story of the Lusitania
On May 7, 1915, the German submarine U 20 torpedoed and sank the luxury liner Lusitania with a loss of 1,198 lives. The sinking was surrounded by mysteries and controversies, and a crew of skin-divers have been filming the wreck 300 feet down-a record for television-in an attempt to resolve some of them.
Sir Stephen King-Hall sets the disaster in historical perspective and the film includes interviews with several survivors.
Written, produced and edited by Maurice Harvey.
