Pigeon Forge, Tenn. – The crew and passengers of Titanic likely could not have imagined the technology that would one day be used to help people remember their stories a century after the ship’s fateful voyage. Stories that were forged in the day of early wireless radio signal are now being shared online in a series of web videos produced and hosted by Titanic Museum Attractions.
The museum attraction has produced 100 videos spotlighting individual crew members and passengers aboard the ship in April, 1912. The Titanic Museum Attraction is sharing a new video online each day for 100 days. The videos are narrated by the museum’s First Class Maid, Jaynee, and provide background on how the spotlighted person and Titanic became intertwined in history.
“While the Titanic Museum Attractions are notable for their collection of important artifacts associated with the ship and its passengers, the real treasure of the Titanic is found in the stories of the people associated with the event,” said John Joslyn, owner of the Titanic Museum Attraction and leader of the first private-expedition dive to explore the ship’s resting place. “This video series offers a glimpse of the stories that are told every day in one of our museums.”
For the first 100 days of 2012, a new video will be featured each day on www.titanicbranson.com and www.titanicpigeonforge.com. All 100 videos will be available as a collection for viewing in April as part of the RMS Titanic 100th anniversary commemoration.
