Rebuilding Titanic is a five-part series showcasing a determined team of experts as they bring the Titanic back to life. These experts use 100 year-old methods to rebuild iconic sections of history's most famous ship, including a piece of the steel bow, the anchor, and some of the Titanic's most luxurious interior fixtures. Walking in the footsteps of the mechanics who originally built the Titanic, the experts uncover the lives of those who built it before them and reveal secrets about a ship that was once thought to be unsinkable.
