In all, 1,198 lives were lost after the passenger liner RMS Lusitania was struck by a torpedo from a German U-boat off the coast off Ireland in 1915.
It’s described in this feature-length documentary as “the original war crime of the 20th century” but the exact reason behind the sinking still remains a mystery. Here we follow what might be the last expedition to the wreck site in a bid to uncover a secret that’s been buried for the best part of a century.
It’s a fascinating enigma that will grip your attention throughout, even if the boisterous voiceover and flashy music do their best to put you off.
Scientists explore four theories surrounding the ship's sinking off the coast of Ireland in 1915, a tragedy that saw 1,200 people die after a torpedo hit the liner.
