OCEANGATE: BBC TWO EXPLORE THE TITAN SUB TRAGEDY IN NEW DOCUMENTARY

OceanGate (w/t), a 1x60’ for BBC Two and iPlayer, explores the major mysteries behind the tragedy that captured the world’s attention when it took the lives of five people in the North Atlantic in 2023.



Inventor Stockton Rush died in the implosion that destroyed Titan; did his previous successful dives to Titanic cause him to become overconfident?



The filmmakers have unparalleled access to follow the US Coastguard Marine Board investigation into the disaster – their return to the wreckage to recover more evidence, their scientific tests on that wreckage and the testimony of witnesses who will be called to give evidence at an upcoming two-week hearing.


Despite all the speculation, no-one at all knows exactly what went wrong with Titan on that fateful day. The Coastguard investigators are examining various theories about why the submersible failed.



The film will also delve into the motives of Stockton Rush, interviewing those who knew him well and have unique insights into his ability to inspire people, his engineering skills, and his background. And it will include never-before seen footage of Titan’s final successful dive to Titanic and Stockton Rush’s last interview recorded for mainstream TV.


OceanGate (w/t), a 1x60’ for BBC Two and iPlayer, is co-produced by Discovery Channel USA, CBC in Canada, and ZDF in Germany.
