Interesting. Wrecks over a 20+ year period of time, long before many of us were born. The history point of view is good. Unfortunately, the disaster part is not good. If you are really into this, you will enjoy it. Personally… not really my cup of tea.

Additional remarks by rrvideoman:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: A little rough around the edges.
DVD Value:: Fair.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
