Belfast, 1909. The Harland and Wolff shipyard has been handed the greatest project in its history. It will build a great, unsinkable ship. And it will be called the RMS Titanic. "Titanic: Blood & Steel" is the untold story of the building of a legend, and the many lives it affected during its 3-year construction. To its wealthy investors, it was a dream. To the middle class who oversaw the project, it was a challenge. But to the working class who built it, Titanic was the start of a revolution. With Ireland under British rule, and the Protestant and Catholic struggle intensifying, Titanic was more than a ship…it was a symbol of ambition, hope and unity.
Lionsgate has today announced that the 12-part mini-series, Titanic: Blood and Steel - starring Derek Jacobi, Neve Campbell, Kevin Zegers and Chris Noth - is coming to DVD ($29.98 SRP) and high-def Blu-ray Disc ($29.97 SRP) on December 4th. Each of these 3-disc sets will be "Loaded with Special Features!," but the studio hasn't provided any details about these as of yet. Here is the package art for each version:
