We are commemorating one of the most famous ships in the world in the lead up to the 100th anniversary of the demise of the Titanic said Orla Saul. To bring this special and unique story to life we are delighted to have Susie Miller over from Ireland. Miller runs Titanic Tours in Belfast and is here today to tell us the most intriguing, poignant and personal story about Titanic.
The 100th anniversary coincides with the opening of the Titanic visitor centre on 31st March in Belfast. Some people dont know that the Titanic was built in Belfast said Ms. Saul. Theres a unique connection with the city on so many levels and this new £97 million visitor has been built to recognise Titanics extraordinary legacy.
The Titanic Belfast Festival runs from 31 March through until 22 April 2012 and includes plays, tours, exhibitions, talks, a laser show and a major MTV outdoor event all themed around Titanic as well as commemorations on the actual anniversary of the ships sinking (14-15 April).

PS: I know first hand it's a touchy subject, but last time I checked Belfast is still part of the United Kingdom.

And, or course, there are the inevitable "what if" scenarios, actions that could have been taken to either prevent or mitigate the disaster.
