Olympic & Titanic: 'A Very Remote Contingency' - Lifeboats for All

Mark Chirnside explores the issue of lifeboat regulation over the decades preceding the Titanic disaster and discusses the context immediately prior to 1912. He discusses the question of lifeboat provision for these new White Star giants and dispels a few longstanding myths and false claims made about Titanic's lifeboats.
