This review is from: Discovery Channel - Titanic Gift Pack [DVD] (DVD)This is an excellent value for money box set, the first couple of DVDs are a little stale in terms of offering nothing new, but as you work throught the set, you are really drawn into the story.
There is some amazing footage of the Titanic on the seabed, especially some interior shots never seen before which are fasinating. There is alot of analysis of the sinking, etc which is neither too stuffy or dumbed down and some fairly interesting and credible theories are put forward that really get you thinking.
In terms of the expedition footage, it is kept in context, unlike most books and DVDs that spend far too much time banging on about the submarines and the techniques used to explore the titanic.
If you watch the DVDs together in close succession, there is some repetion of shots and narrative, but it is fairly minimal.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the films and learnt quite a bit more about the Titanic, the sinking and people who were on it.
