It appears to be two seperate shows, siamese-twinned together:

(I'm watching the first, Hindenburgh part, right now, @21.12 PST.)

Hi Bob: I watched this and thought it very interesting both on the Titanic and the Hindenburg. Can you imagine if they had the film record of the Titanic disaster as they did of the Hindenburg? What a different viewpoint we would all have if that were the case! I did see video in this program that I don't think I have ever seen before, such as a "white' Olympic and the British memorial service footage after the sinking. I think they took some liberties with some of the facts and when they came up with the old Titanic-Olympic switcheroo thing, I thought they had really screwed it up. They then debunked that theory so that was ok and I calmed down! All in all though, both events were pretty well depicted I thought.

Regards, Peter

Yes, I liked it too, Peter. I was wondering why they covered the Hindenburg first, since it ocurred after Titanic. Maybe because the death toll was much higher in Titanic and its story was more interesting.
