About this item
Relive the terrible fate of this historic ship - and join one of the most thrilling deep-water expeditions of all time - in this mesmerizing special presentation! It is the Everest of wreck-dives. It is a mystery hidden by 400 feet of treacherous water. It is an adventure awaiting an intrepid band of explorers. It is the perfect destination for The History Channel. HMHS Britannic, the largest - and grandest - of the Olympic Class cruisers, sister ship to the ill-fated Titanic, was launched just six months before the outbreak of WWI and was soon pressed into service as a floating hospital. On Nov. 21, 1916, steaming between Greek islands, an explosion ripped through her and in less than an hour she was four hundred feet beneath the waves. Thirty men lost their lives. In 1976 Jacques Cousteau discovered her in the Kea Channel in the Aegean, but it would be two more decades before Britannic's location was definitively fixed. And, although her location was known, her fate remained a mystery. Was it a mine? A torpedo? Why did this "unsinkable" ship, redesigned after her sister's fateful accident, sink three times faster than Titanic? Join wreck divers John Chatterton and Richie Kohler as they lead an expedition to unravel the persistent mystery of the Britannic's final hour. In an endeavor this risky and complicated, the expedition shares the spotlight with the discoveries. As they explore the bones of the old ship, entering deadly chambers and piecing together decades-old mysteries, they are entering one of the most dangerous places on Earth. Get deep into the mystery and adventure with "Titanic's Tragic Sister".
