Ocean Giants, 2 x 52'

They were elegant, impressive giants of the ocean. Their names tell world history: Titanic, Astoria, Lusitania. They connected the continents, carried immigrants, tourists and the mail: luxurious, reliable and fast as an arrow. For more than a century steam ships were the only connection between the continents across the Atlantic and the Pacific Ocean.

The series OCEAN GIANTS tells the history of these majestic ships. The stories of the super rich in the first class and the poor beggars stuck in the tween deck. It tells of the “blue ribbon” and the wet death, of records and catastrophes, from the proud launching to the final scrapping.

Episode I: A Race between the Nations

Episode II: The Golden Years
