Reasonably good documentary explores the Canadian connections to the disaster, including some of the descendants of those on board the ship a century ago. Two aspects that I found bothersome, and both were beyond the control of the filmmakers. First, the collectors of Titanic artifacts come across to me as decidedly sleazy to begin with, and that side of things is shown. Second, the existance of a Titanic museum in a place with no connection at all to the story is deeply tacky, but everything about the town of Branson Missouri is tacky and classless. It's the sort of place that makes Las Vegas look discreet.
