This is the newsreel that ran after the Titanic sank in 1912

To commemorate the one-hundredth anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking, British Pathe has released the original newsreel that ran following the maritime disaster (the music is a new addition). Witness survivors arriving in New York City and long-distance radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi receiving accolades for inventing such a life-saving device.

You can find further footage from the aftermath at the British Pathe’s archives.
