Watch Unreleased Footage of the First Glimpse of the Titanic Wreck

posted by Jason Kottke Feb 22, 2023

In 1986, a team led by Bob Ballard went down in a submersible to explore the wreck of the Titanic, marking the first time since its sinking in 1912 that the ship was seen by human eyes. When some of the photos and video footage they shot were released to the public, it caused a sensation. But much of the video footage has never been seen by the public — the video above is 1h 21m of "rare, uncut, and unnarrated footage" from that initial dive. (via open culture)
