The National Geographic Channel will have several specials dedicated to Titanic’s centennial in April. James Cameron offers yet another exquisite documentary called Titanic: The Final Word with James Cameron, and Dr. Robert Ballard, the man who discovered the ship’s final resting place more than 25 years ago, is hosting Save the Titanic with Bob Ballard. And high-tech underwater filming equipment is being used to document the Titanic site that’s currently under siege by tourists in custom submarines, treasure hunters, rogue salvage operators and other issues. “If the Titanic is not protected, it’ll get stripped until all the jewels have been taken off the old lady’s body,” reports Ballard, who is striving to get international help to protect the site.
