Lost Liners

Revisit the sites of the sunken giants.

Join Dr. Bob Ballard on a tour of the greatest lost liners in maritime history.

Lost Liners combines history and the science of oceanography, exploring the famous ships that lie beneath the sea: the Titanic, Lusitania, Empress of Ireland, Britannic, and the Andrea Doria. Each ship’s story is brought to life, from their incredible construction to their doomed, final voyages. Bob Ballard explores the mysteries that shroud the sunken ships, and introduces the amazing technology and equipment that make it possible to probe the ocean for these watery gravesites.
