Lost Liners combines history and the science of oceanography to stir the imagination of students. PBS explores the famous ships that lie beneath the sea: the Titanic, Lusitania, Empress of Ireland, Britannic, and the Andrea Doria. Each ship's story is wonderfully told and builds to the climax of tearing metal and rushing water. Bob Ballard provides his expertise by describing the wreck as it lies on the bottom of the ocean and exploring the mysteries that shroud the sinkings. Equally interesting is the section on ocean worthy ships and the equipment that made it possible to probe the ocean for these wrecks. Click on "Diagram of a Colossus" for fascinating old photos of the Lusitania.
