With the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic coming up this week it’s hard to say whether it’s the media or the public with more interest in the photogenic event anniversary.

It could really only be overdone with the introduction of zombies.

As for it being a non-event of last century, well actually it could be considered one of the most important events of last century. So many rules and regulations changed as a result, including

– Ensuring there is enough life boats on a vessel for every person on board
– Ensuring a radio room is monitored 24 x 7.
– Ensuring all passengers go through an evacuation drill within 24 to 48 (depending on the regs) of leaving port.

It was a big event, not just with the loss of life, but also with the sheer number of safety related changes which happened as a result.

Good point, i hadnt actually considered that!

Snapperjack….you do know, uhmm, that the Titanic really did sink, um, in real life and all that? Unless someone has taken amazing artistic licence, the ending of the musical is just that…not an amazing last minute twist of fate where they are all miraculously saved by swimming mammoths and penguins a la Happy Feet meets Ice Age.

I was a bit upset to see the producer on WIN News revealing the ending. Surely if you are promoting a play or movie you shouldn’t spoil the experience by acting as a spoiler. It reminds me of when the Daily Telegraph revealed that the dog dies at the end of Red Dog.

You idiot! Complaining about the Tele – when you just did exactly that and spoilt the movie (which I haven’t seen yet) for me. A*sehole!

+1 Choke on a Maltese next time you’re in the cinema.

The dog dies at the end of Red Dog?

I didn’t know this was the spoiler thread

Im so sick of the Titianic and its stupid story. Every year the press goes on and on about it. IMO its the most overhyped non-event of last century.

One of the deadliest maritime disasters in history is a non-event for you? Cripes. Also as harvyk1 points out, it had a huge knock on effect for maritime reg reforms, many of which are still in place today.

True…true maybe such classics as “Six months in a leaky boat” and “Rock the Boat”…..?

Also, spoiler alert, the boat sinks.

I don’t remember any major media about the event last year, the reason it’s just an event this year is it exactly 100 years since the sinking…
