Titanic. New documentary. The truth of those dramatic events.

Unlike previous Titanic films, Cameron's retel...

A new documentary ‘Titanic: A hundred years of history’ dismantle some of the ideas that previous movies have projected.

Sunk in 1912 after touching an iceberg during its first voyage, The Titanic keeps on being a legend and a motive of controversy.

Now, the Titanic foundation says that no shots were fired during its sinking and that the gates remained open. Furthermore, ice never reached the deck and the iceberg impact was so smooth that nobody paid attention.

These are some of the myths that the documentary dismantles. ‘Titanic, a hundred years of history’ produced by the Titanic Foundation.

“We have created a story from another story,” Jesus Ferreiro, president of the Foundation, has just explained. In fact, Jesus Ferreiro has been scrutinizing what happened that morning in April 1912 more than a decade.

After recovering the testimony of 123 survivors and met 39 of them, among whom was Millvina Dean, the last survivor, Jesus Ferreiro has reconstructed the true story of the last moments of sinking, explaining the truth about certain myths that accompany the legend of the famous British liner.

Thus, The Titanic didn’t hit an iceberg, just grazed it and so gently that even the bridge officers believed that nothing was going to happen.

However, the touch had been in the “weaker” part of the hull, causing that the rivets jumped out and the entry into the ship of 9 tons of water per second.

Despite this big damage, the Titanic endured nearly three hours afloat. Jesus Ferreiro attributes this ‘miracle’ to the maneuvers ordered by the first officer William Murdoch, the first person who sighted the iceberg and who believed it was another ship.

Anyway and although movies have distorted reality, they have helped people know the story of the Titanic. Jesus Ferreiro loves specially James Cameron famous movie ‘Titanic’.

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September.
