TITANIC'S ACHILLES HEEL Premieres on The History Channel(R) Sunday, June 17 at 8pm ET/PT

The never before told story of the greatest maritime disaster in history (May 24, 2007)

NEW YORK, May 24 /PRNewswire/ -- When the 2006 History Channel special, TITANIC: MISSING PIECES, discovered missing pieces of the Titanic on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean, it dramatically changed the tale of the ship's final, doomed moments. Now, further research of the find reveals a tangle of deception and half-truths that dramatically changes our understanding of the greatest maritime disaster in history. The dramatic re-writing of the tale continues exclusively on The History Channel(R) with the world premiere of TITANIC'S ACHILLES HEEL, Sunday, June 17, 2007 at 8:00pm ET/PT.

The missing pieces that were discovered in 2005 essentially indicated that the Titanic broke apart in the water before sinking, which had to be terrifying experience for those aboard. The unsinkable ship that was built to serve as its own lifeboat until help arrived broke apart in a manner never imagined by its engineers. TITANIC'S ACHILLES HEEL aims to find out why the ship broke apart as it did, and why the "official" details of the sinking seemed to make the truth so elusive.


Was Titanic a doomed ship before it ever left port, plagued with structural problems? Would she have survived the unforgiving Atlantic Ocean even if she hadn't hit that iceberg? And even more disturbingly, were the ship's builders fully aware of these issues as thousands of civilians boarded the doomed ship? Did a massive post-sinking PR effort attempt to throw the public and the investigators off the trail of clues?

This story has never before been told. Now, through technical and historical research, inquiry transcripts, survivor testimony, and the help of a modern-day whistleblower, the real truth about Titanic may finally be known.

Executive Producer for The History Channel is Carl Lindahl. TITANIC'S ACHILLES HEEL is produced by Lone Wolf Productions.
