Titanic: The Band Played On
From the moment the Titanic sank in the icy waters off Newfoundland, a series of powerful myths grew up around the fateful event. Perhaps the most potent of all was that of the band standing on deck, bravely playing on until the last lifeboat had left and there was no hope of escape. Titanic: The Band Played On tells the story of their heroic actions in the face of certain death. British musician Suggs interviews renowned experts and descendants of the band’s musicians to delve further into the story that has lasted well beyond their lifetimes.
