It was claimed to be the Big One for the 1980s; a film adventure to rival the James Bond franchise and the movie that would make Great Britain’s entertainment mogul Lord Lew Grade a threat to the Hollywood film studios. Titanic historian Jonathan Smith chronicles the ups and downs of the production of Raise the Titanic; the $35m big-screen adaptation of Clive Cussler’s 1976 bestselling novel.

Raise the Titanic: The Making of the Movie delves deep into the interesting and often puzzling production woes that went on to haunt Grade and his acclaimed film and television companies of ITC and Marble Arch Productions.
