‘Titanic Sinking; No Lives Lost’


After more than a hundred years since the Titanic disaster, it is hard to imagine the headline which awaited readers of The World on Monday 15 April 1912. Following its collision with an iceberg, journalists reported, “Titanic Sinking; No Lives Lost’.



In the end, once the facts had finally surfaced, news arrived announcing the deaths of 1,514 people with only 868 being recused. These initial news reports provide an incredible insight concerning the manner in which contemporaries received the news and is certainly a fascinating reminder of the difficulties which plagued the media during the early twentieth century, even in the wake of such a high-profile and world changing event.
