Sharing Titanic history online

Photographs, documents and other items have been put online

Nearly three hundred bodies recovered from the Titanic disaster were taken to Halifax in Canada. Many newspaper articles, photographs and documents relating to the people taken there are in a special archive. Most are going on the internet for people to see for the first time.

Mike Pearse talks to Gary Shutlock of the Public Archives of Nova Scotia and takes a look at some of the papers and items used to identify those who died. Personal effects were returned to families after identifications took place.
