    Afraid this is total waffle..

    Look carefully at the ship\'s side. Note that the lifeboats are missing. What ship would sail without lifeboats?
    That ship is being warped into a wide dock, Note the deployment of additional head lines and springs to each side of the dock and absence of tugs as she progresses forward.
    Captain Smith is shown wearing tropical whites - hardly the gear for the north Atlantic in mid spring.

    Requires work. Could do better.... much better.

    Although this is genuine Titanic footage, it must be prior to April 2nd as the enclosed promenade (a major difference between her and the Olympic) has still not been fitted.

    The tube hanging over the ship's starboard side is the workmen's lavatory.
