Titanic (2012) Preview

ITV1 marks the centenary of the Titanic disaster next month with the broadcast of a new four-part mini-series. Titanic is penned by Oscar winning screenwriter and Downton Abbey creator, Julian Fellowes. The drama – filmed at Stern Studios in Budapest, and costing £11 million – is scheduled to air over four consecutive nights in the UK, and has been sold to 86 countries.
At the recent ITV press launch, Fellowes said that although A Night to Remember (1958) and James Cameron’s Titanic (1997) were both wonderful films, his own version actually told “the whole story for the first time.” But TV critics have already compared Titanic 2012 to ‘posh’ costume dramas like Upstairs, Downstairs, and have dubbed the series Downton-on-Sea.
