This first clip features genuine Titanic footage during her fitting. Workmen can be seen aboard her in Belfast where the ship was built. The newsreel then shows footage of the Carpathia taking the survivors to New York. Some of the survivors pose for the cameras.
Interviews with Titanic survivors including Arthur Lewis and Edith Russell.
These shots will be familiar to anyone who has seen documentaries on the Titanic disaster. Although often presented as the Titanic, this footage is undoubtably of her sister ship RMS Olympic. However, genuine footage relating to the disaster does appear - with families waiting outside the offices of the White Star Line to hear whether or not their loved ones have survived.
A slightly extended version of the clip above.
In this clip, Lord French unveils a Titanic memorial in Northern Ireland (1920).

The Titanic disaster led to a re-evaluation of regulations regarding lifeboats, but also to the establishment of the International Ice Patrol, featured in this clip.
Many survivors of the disaster went on to lead interesting lives. This newsreel shows Mr Logan in Australia in 1961.
RMS Olympic was the first of the three Olympic class vessels to be built. Virtually identical, these ships shared the same unparalleled flourishes, and the same unfortunate flaws. This clip features a railway load bound for the Olympic in 1925.
Four ships totalling 180,000 tons set a new record for being in Southampton harbour together. The RMS Olympic is among them.
This interesting little feature features the Prince of Wales (the future Edward VIII) travelling on the RMS Olympic in 1924 and talking to Captain Howarth.
The RMS Olympic had a couple of unfortunate collisions during its career, one while under the command of Captain Smith, who would subsequently die aboard the Titanic. This newsreel, from 1934, is of the occasion when the great ship ploughed into the tiny US lightship Nantucket, which sank
The RMS Britannic was launched in 1915.
Britannic was not a passenger liner for long - the First World War meant that Britannic, still unfinished, was converted into a hospital ship, becoming known as HMHS Britannic. In 1916 she struck a German mine off Greece and sank. Thirty people died when two lifeboats were churned up by the propellers. This footage is of the Britannic during its fitting in Belfast.
One of Britannic's funnels is fitted. Only three of the four funnels on Olympic class vessels actually worked. The fourth was a dummy, added because the White Star Line felt this made the ships look more impressive.
