Tuesday, April 10, 2012

KET commemorates the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, the deadliest peacetime maritime disaster in history, with three new programs: The Titanic With Len Goodman, Saving the Titanic, and Nova “Why Ships Sink.”

The Titanic With Len Goodman examines the impact of the ship’s sinking on the thousands of affected families. Goodman, best known as a judge on Dancing with the Stars, has his own connection to the ship. Before he was a dancer, he was a welder in East London for Harland and Woolf, the company that built the Titanic in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The Titanic With Len Goodman airs Tuesday, April 10 at 8/7 pm CT on KET2 and Thursday, April 12 at 10/9 pm CT on KET.

Saving the Titanic is a new historical drama that tells the untold story of the self-sacrifice and bravery of the ship’s engineers, stokers and firemen. The program seeks to answer the question of what happened in the engine and boiler rooms after the collision. Saving the Titanic airs Tuesday, April 10 at 9/8 pm CT on KET and Sunday, April 15 at 9/8 pm CT on KET2.

Nova “Why Ships Sink” investigates the safety of cruise ships and questions whether passengers are safe at sea a century later. Nova “Why Ships Sink” airs Wednesday, April 18 at 9/8 p.m. CT on KET.
