Songs of Praise: Titanic Centenary

18th March 2012

This weekend marks a century since the Titanic tragedy, in which 1,517 lost their lives. Eamonn is in Belfast, where the world's most famous ocean liner was built, to reflect on the lives lost and the legacy of the 'unsinkable ship' in a special episode of Songs Of Praise. Maritime hymns come from St Thomas' Church, and guest singers Brian Houston and the Celtic Tenors perform inspiring songs of faith.

Whilst in Belfast, Eamonn visited the now derelict Harland&Wolff Drawing Offices, where the ship was designed. From the window you can see the new Titanic exhibition centre, which is built to the same scale as the ship was whilst it was being constructed on the slipway.

The programme was broadcast on Sunday 11 March at 17.10 on BBC1.
