Titanic: The Mission 2/5

9:00pm Monday, October 4 on C4

Titanic is one of the greatest maritime legends in history. This five-part series reveals how this famous ship was built – here in the United Kingdom. To tell this story a team of modern-day engineers each week build an iconic section of the world’s most famous ship, using the methods of 100 years ago. The team cast Titanic’s iconic 16-tonne steel bow anchor at the last steel works in Britain: Forgemasters in Sheffield, and then return the anchor to its ‘hometown’ of Netherton on the back of a cart dragged by 20 shire horses.
