Over 100 years ago Titanic, the revered and “unsinkable ship,” struck an iceberg and sank 3,800 meters (12.500 feet) into the depths of the Atlantic Ocean.

For decades, the legendary ocean liner has fascinated historians, scientists, and the public alike. Since her discovery in 1985, the Titanic is the most investigated shipwreck in history.

While every expedition gets closer to revealing more clues about the sinking of the infamous ship, one major discovery is concerning Titanic’s world-leading explorers: the wreck is being engulfed by colonies of bacteria that consume hundreds of kilograms of iron every day, posing a serious risk to the site. Some experts predict that in the face of this new threat it will disappear in less than 20 years.

With an all-new approach, ‘Titanic: Into the Heart of the Wreck’ tells the extraordinary underwater odyssey of the greatest Titanic expeditions. From the epic discovery of the wreck by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the Ifremer institute, to the state-of-the-art technologies deployed to venture inside of the ship with robots, and including the archeological treasure hunts that rescued over 5,800 artifacts, we will experience the unequaled thrill of the extreme dives to Titanic.

For the first time, six heroes of Titanic exploration will tell us about their extraordinary underwater odysseys and their missions to preserve the last remains of the Titanic.
