Join us for two programs examining the legacy of the Titanic disaster.

At 2 p.m., join Len Goodman as he examines the 100-year legacy of the Titanic, exploring the human stories that unfolded in the years after the ship sank. He meets descendants of passengers and crew and hears how, for the families of many on board, the sinking was just the start of the story. He visits Belfast, the city where Titanic was built, and journeys to other towns left scarred by the tragedy. The Titanic with Len Goodman airs Sunday, April 5, 2015 at 2 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

Stay tuned at 3 p.m. for Titinic: Band of Courage which explores the dramatic and inspiring story of the eight musicians who continued to play as the Titanic went down. Their story is told through new recordings of songs from the White Star Songbook, along with archival photos and interviews with experts on the tragedy, the era and its music, offering insight into the musicians and why the courageous men continued to play until the end.
