Comments about PBS NOVA: Why Ships Sink DVD:

It's a subject you can learn if you have an interest in boats and ships.
The DVD compares the Titanic sinking with
the partial sinking of the ship of the Italy
Coast.

Excellent portrayal of poor planning

Comments about PBS NOVA: Why Ships Sink DVD:

As a disaster response planner, the pitfalls of just doing what's inspected vs what's expected are vividly portrayed. Compliance with current regulations does not equal safety!! Governing bodies and federal regulations can't do it all. At some point, companies have to do what's right and not just what's right for the bottom line.
