Titanic - Genuine 1912 Footage. This newsreel (without the music)would
have been shown in the cinemas at the time of the disaster. Footage
includes the Titanic leaving Belfast Lough for Southampton on April 2nd,
1912. Captain Smith on the Bridge of the Titanic. The video also shows
various ships such the Carparthia returning from rescuing survivors.
Journalists interviewing survivors. Guglielmo Marconi, the inventor of
long distance radio transmission and who was credited with saving those
who were saved because of his marvelous invention.
says this was shot on April 2nd, 1912, British Pathe think it was
probably earlier. The ship still looks like work is being done to it
with lots of workmen still around. The Titanic's name is in black as is
other parts of the ship which ultimately ended up as white. There is
also a workman's loo which can clearly be seen dangling off the left
hand side of the ship - this surely would have been removed before
