TNA Podcast: Titanic: the official story

Using documents from The National Archives, copies of which are shown at  http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/podcasts/titanic-the-official-story.htm, James Cronan takes us through the history of the ship, from its construction and launch to its fateful end.

James Cronan is a records specialist in diplomatic and colonial records. His interest in all things Titanic stems from the fact that his great-grandfather was a crewman on board the stricken ship. He has worked at The National Archives for 17 years, at Chancery Lane, the Family Records Centre and Kew.The talk was given before an appreciative audience on 15 April 2010.
